Changing lives through adult foundational learning in connected communities

The Bow Valley Adult Learning Centre is part of the Alberta-wide Community Adult Learning Program network focused on offering the foundational skills adults require to fully engage in their communities.

We are recognized as an inclusive adult learning centre that connects our community through inspiration for life-long learning.

We provide access to the skills, knowledge and opportunity that empower adults to fully participate in their communities.

We strive to remove all barriers to learning and are guided by our diverse community of learners.

We believe that everyone is worthy of respect and should have access to the knowledge and skills that best serve them.

We empower our learners and community, creating a solid base for full participation in a shared future.

We are committed to providing our adult learning community with flexible education options that facilitate individual success for each learner.
