At James Lyng Adult Education Centre, we’re passionate about the education of all our students. We strive to make learning a positive experience and everything we do is designed to help all students achieve to the best of their ability. Our collective, daily efforts make a positive difference in the lives of our students, their families and the world. Guided by our mission, vision and values, we build a positive place for learning and working...together.

We serve a widely diverse and multi-cultural student body of students, aged 16 to 80. These dynamics contribute to a rich and vibrant community. Our caring staff makes sure that all of our students feel welcome.

Students attend James Lyng Adult Education Centre for a variety of reasons that include: working towards a High School Diploma, learning French and English conversation,   finishing pre-requisites for career training programs or obtaining the necessary credits to enroll at CEGEP or University.  We want our students to be successful. We provide the skills, information and guidance as they go through our programs and we enthusiastically celebrate their achievements.

Student life plays a big role at James Lyng Adult Education Centre. Our staff and students are community minded and socially aware. They organize, and participate in, many events and activities throughout the year. That gives us our strong character and unique personality.

Our doors are always open to students who need guidance or are ready to resume their studies and pursue their dreams.
