Taking the "e" out of eLearning.
Learning as a community in real-time and with a shared responsibility to engage, inquire and grow.
EQAO has announced that the OSSLT will only be offered to students participating in “in-person learning” this year. This means that VLC will not be able to offer students an opportunity to write the test this year. You will not be able to register to write it at another high school either. The OSSLT requirement has been waived for students graduating in the current academic year (2020/21).
The Minister of Education announced earlier today that the March Break holiday, scheduled to take place March 15 to 19 will be postponed until the week of April 12 to 16. This means the Virtual Learning Center students are expected to take part in learning activities during the week of March 15 to 19. Spring break will now take place the week of April 12 to 16. The decision was made in consultation with the Ontario chief medical officer of health, and public health officials to assist in slowing the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.
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.

"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.
