Bedford and Forsyth Education Centres

BFEC is a public high school within the Halifax Regional School Board (HRSB) that supports Adult learners as well as high school aged learners. Adult learners (aged 21 and over or aged 19 and over who have been out of school for one year) who do not have a high school diploma can attend free of charge!
If you are an adult learner or a high school aged learner who is interested in returning to school, please complete our online Expression of Interest before coming in to register. Please note, BFEC is not a program. We are a high school.
