Get Your Grade 12 Equivalency and Open New Doors

Can’t get into college because you don’t have your high school diploma? Is it hard to find a job because you need your Grade 12?

Confederation College’s Academic & Career Entrance (ACE) program can help. This certificate is the same as an Ontario Grade 12 diploma to apply for college and some universities (including Lakehead University), as well as certain apprenticeship programs. Many employers also accept the ACE Certificate in place of a high school diploma, so you can apply for jobs that ask for Grade 12. Courses include ACE Math, ACE Communications and a choice of two others including physics, chemistry, computers and biology to give you a well-rounded education.

Upgrade your skills, find a better job, apply for college – what will you do with your ACE Certificate?


  • Learn in an adult atmosphere
  • Learn at your own pace – schedule school around your busy life
  • Courses available all year during days, evenings, and online through Distance Learning
  • FREE! - costs are 100% funded by the Ministry of Advanced Education & Development - Employment Ontario
  • Subsidies are also available for transportation, childcare & other barriers to education
