If you're an adult

and would like to begin a DVS but do not have a Secondary Study Diploma (DSS)?

Then the SARCA service can help you.


The SARCA (Services d’accueil, de référence, de conseil et d’accompagnement) are services with specific goals offered to adults who do not have a secondary school diploma to help them:


  • acquire
    • a better knowledge of themselves and their resource
    • appropriate information
    • a better capacity to define their objectives and aspirations
  • decide
    • their education project and actions to take in order to realise them
  • receive
    • help they could need in order to succeed in all the actions they take.


If this is your situation and you don’t know what to do or if you would like to improve your situation and need assistance, then, do not wait any longer. The SARCA personnel in the Montreal region will welcome you, give you support, listen and help you clarify and realize your education project. Services are free.


You can contact the SARCA service by e-mail, by phone or go to any of their offices. You can also obtain information about the SARCA service in any adult training centre. To know more and find the one closer to your home, see the list below:
