ILC is a school of choice for students who find the neighbourhood school is not the right fit; its greatest strengths are that it provides flexibility, including continual entry, and it meets students where they are in their learning and their lives.

  • Do you perform better in a small and quiet environment?

  • Do you want to have an active role in building your educational plan?

  • Do you want to be valued and recognized for your differences?

  • Do you want more one on one time with your teacher?

  • Do you find your high school chaotic and stressful?

  • Is anxiety interfering with your education?

Students receive personalized attention in a small, quiet learning environment that is low stress, where there is less pressure and where students are valued for their differences.
