Any adult learner who would like to graduate with a Dogwood Diploma can register with School District 70 to complete an Adult Dogwood Diploma. To receive an Adult Dogwood Diploma, a learner must be over the age of 18 and must complete
- either English 12 or Communications 12,

For non-graduated adults, courses required for high school graduation are fully funded by the Ministry of Education.
Literacy and numeracy supports for adult learners are also available at the Eighth Avenue Learning Centre. Learners that do not live in Port Alberni can also access courses in an online format and may still qualify for graduation from a distance.
For graduated adults, tuition charges may apply for learners that need to complete or upgrade a high-school course such as English 12, Biology 12 or Pre-Calculus 11.
