The ILC is a drop-in learning center for youth aged 15-21 who are looking for an alternative to the regular school system. Our students work independently in a self-paced learning environment with individual support from. Students work towards graduation, either with a B.C. Dogwood or Adult Graduation Certificate. The B.C. Dogwood Certificate requires a minimum of 80 course credits and an Adult Graduation requires a minimum of 20 credits.
The ILC offers flexible hours for students who may have full time employment and/or family commitments that prevent them from having a set timetable. Our hours of operation for students are 7:30am-5pm Monday to Thursday and 9am-3pm on Fridays.
We offer core subjects grades 9 through 12, a variety of electives, and cultural/ experiential/ land-based educational opportunities. Students are able to cross enroll with other Yukon high schools, as well as access distance learning through the Aurora Virtual School, which is based out of the same building as the ILC.
As you may have heard, British Columbia is making changes to its curriculum and the graduation requirements for students. Yukon schools follow B.C.’s curriculum and graduation program. An important change is that B.C. is phasing out the provincial exams (BCPEs) for Math 10 (or equivalent), Language Arts 10 (or equivalent), Français langue première 10, Science 10, Social Studies 11 (or equivalent), English 12 (or equivalent), Français langue première 12 and Français langue seconde immersion 12.
