Adult Education Center

©First Step Adult Education Center 2015

The FIRST STEP Center is an Alberta Education accredited private High School, located in Lacombe Alberta, serving adults who would like to complete their high school credits, or are interested in upgrading pre-requisites to attend college/university...and much more. We offer classes during the day, but please call if you are interested in evening classes—we may be able to help if there is enough interest in a course. Feel free to take a tour of the site!



Funding may

be available for

full-time and

part-time learners

through federal and provincial programs.

Response to Coronavirus


CLASSES CANCELLED – All students will move to a Tutor Supported, Independent Learning model of Delivery. Upon direction provided by the Government of Alberta, all classes at The FIRST STEP CENTER are now cancelled. We will however continue to provide learning opportunities for all of our registered students.


We expect all students to continue to complete their course work using textbooks, workbooks, T4T and power points. Also, our staff will be available for quick tutorials. If students are in need of assistance working through assignments (providing you are not ill or in self-isolation), please call ahead to book a time with your teacher.


The FIRST STEP Center will continue to be open from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm daily [indefinitely], for students to pick up and drop off assignments as well as write unit exams. To accommodate those who may have difficulty finding child care during the day, the school will also be open Thursday evenings from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.


We encourage all students to do their best to stay on schedule for assignments and exams, and we are confident that there is sufficient time to complete all coursework by June.  We appreciate everyone’s patience as we work together through these stressful times.  !   J
