Please be advised that the Virtual Learning Center is currently under an order from the Provincial Government, directing that all schools and buildings are to be closed. We do not have staff in the office at this time, but we will be monitoring calls and returning messages as soon as we can. Please note, there may be some delay in the returning of messages. The best way to reach us is to email ([email protected] ). Thank you for your patience during this time.
The Virtual Learning Centre has been offering Ontario Secondary School students a wide range of flexible, and well-designed high school courses since 1997. It is a renowned program that is unlike any other eLearning initiative in Ontario.
The VLC offers students a full range of learning opportunities powered by the latest online technologies available.
We are committed to setting very high standards for distance learning and know that the student-teacher interaction is key to student success. For this reason, we encourage all of our students to attend web meetings, and to adhere to the course schedule and all due dates. This level of rigor builds a strong work ethic and forges a classroom and school community thereby preparing our students for post-secondary studies.
For more information please review the FAQ section on our website.

"I took one English course with VLC and I was hooked..."
All of our courses are taught by highly qualified Ontario teachers who understand how to blend the power of synchronous, streamed communication with the flexibility of static, anywhere-anytime course content. Students succeed in our program and our attrition rates (under 20%) demonstrate that our program works for most learners.
