      At Keyin College, we answer questions every day from adult learners. People like you, who want to learn more about completing their Grade 12 or upgrading their high school credits. No sales pitch, no commitment, just straightforward answers.

      Helping people figure it out is what we do!

      • Can I do it? • Will it be harder, now that I’ve been away from school for a while? • Can I learn to study again? • Who will be in the class? • Are we all learning the same thing? • How can I afford to pay? • How long will it take?

      We’re here to help!

      The more people ask, the more they learn about how completing high school could work for them, and the better they feel about their decisions. Just complete the Request More Information Today form, or call us at 1-833-grade12.

    • Hairstylist

      Hairstyle
      The 37-week Hairstylist Diploma program provides students with the fundamentals of cutting, styling, colouring, chemical waving and relaxing, colour analysis and so much more. Our program specializes in practical hands-on training in hair design while providing simulated, real work experience in our campus salon. This is a provincially-accredited, apprenticeship program that was developed by government and approved by the Provincial Apprenticeship and Certification Board. The program provides students with a wide range of skills that are needed to work as a first-year apprentice.

      Apprenticeship Training

      These courses, completed at Keyin College, will represent partial completion of requirements for Journeyperson status under the Interprovincial Red Seal Certification. Once this training is complete and the student secures employment in the trade, he/she must register as an apprentice with the Apprenticeship and Trades Division (ATCD), of the Department of Immigration, Population Growth and Skills.
