Programs and Courses

The decision to return to school is never easy, especially if you’ve been out of the classroom for a while. Not sure you can do it? Many others are taking the first step… enrollment of non-traditional students is up 30% to 40% in recent years.


Some common reasons for the surge in education among this population include:

  • A change in career (often due to job loss)
  • A desire to improve job skills (leading to more pay)
  • A life transition (such as having children or divorce)
  • Personal enrichment

But everyone’s situation is unique, and regardless of your reason, going back to school requires a personal commitment. It takes time and money, and if you’re working full-time or raising a family, you’ll have a lot to juggle. At St. Louis, we understand and will support you with this decision however we can.  You still have to do the work. Take a look at the big picture to make sure you are comfortable with whatever decision you make, and we will find the right educational path for you (or your child).  St. Louis has over 25 different programs and services at over 16 locations throughout Waterloo Region. Please explore our website to discover all the options available!
