The IL Secondary Program offers high school credit courses that focus on oral communication, reading and writing in a language other than English or French. Students will develop intercultural understanding and will use the target language to communicate and interact in a variety of social and academic settings. The Ontario credits can be used towards high school diploma completion as well as post-secondary admissions.
Your safety is our priority!
Due to the pandemic, courses are offered in a secure, virtual environment, consisting of synchronous and asynchronous learning. Courses will return to physical schools when it is deemed safe to do so.
