Pathway to Adult Secondary School Graduation

Pathway to Adult Secondary School (PASS) graduation gives adult learners a new route to earn the same Nunavut Secondary School Diploma (commonly known as the Grade 12 Diploma) as those students who have completed the high school route.

PASS is specially designed for adult students over the age of 19 who only need a few credits to complete their high school program requirements.


Nunavut Arctic College instructors deliver the online curriculum offered through the Alberta Distance Learning Centre (ADLC), and it  is the same as that offered in Nunavut schools.

Trained facilitators, computer equipment, connectivity, specialized training to use the equipment, and space to learn, are all provided by Arctic College to help student enrolled in a PASS course succeed in meeting their learning goals toward completion of their Grade 12 Diploma.


PASS links learners to other students, teachers and content online through dedicated computers and connectivity designed to work in Nunavut. Students can learn from any Nunavut community – even if they change communities during their studies.
