Get the education you deserve

The ILC is Ontario's designated provider of distance education. We are funded by the Ministry of Education and our high school courses are designed to offer you the best in flexible, affordable and accredited distance education.

Why choose the ILC? We are:

1. Flexible: We strive to serve as many Ontarians as possible with their distance education needs. Whether you’re young or old, north in Thunder Bay or south in Windsor, a new parent or a new Canadian, employed or looking to change your career path, in high school or post-secondary, the ILC’s continuous enrolment and semester-free calendar means you will have more opportunities to study and succeed. Our courses are designed to offer you the independence and flexibility you need to get the most out of your high school education. Have a question? Contact one of our Student Support staff, and we’ll get you started!

2. Affordable: For most students, registering for an ILC course is $40. That’s it. All textbooks and supplementary materials are covered in this administration fee. At the ILC, we recognize that many of our students come to us with a strong commitment to improve their education and their lives. An affordable fee is one way we want to ensure that you get off on the right track. Interested? Check out our high school courses and start enrolling today!

3. Accredited: We are funded by the Ministry of Education and have the sole mandate to provide distance education and GED testing in Ontario. The ILC has served Ontarians since 1926. Our courses follow or exceed the Ministry’s rigorous curriculum guidelines. Your work is reviewed and graded by Ontario-certified teachers. And finally, your Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or High School Equivalency Certificate is signed by the Ontario Minister of Education. It doesn’t get any more official than that, does it?
