Adult Education Overview
We help graduated and non-graduated adults of any age earn a BC high school diploma. Adult students can choose to work towards an Adult Dogwood Diploma that is awarded after passing five key high school courses.
What courses are required to satisfy the BC Adult Graduation Diploma (Adult Dogwood)?
Adult students are required to complete a Language Arts 12 (English 12), Math 11 (or 12), and three grade 12 elective courses (of which, one elective could be a Social Studies 11 course).
How much does the program cost?
Non-graduated adults with BC residency pay $500 per course and $1000 for up to 8 courses in a year.
Adults who have already graduated with a BC diploma and still want to take high school courses pay $1000 per course.
Can credits be counted from post-secondary schools?
Of the five courses required for the Adult Dogwood, at least three must be completed after the adult student has entered the Adult Graduation Program.
Can my past high school credits be transferred to the Adult Dogwood program?
Adult students can receive credit toward the Adult Dogwood for no more than two qualifying courses completed while in the B.C. (school-aged) Graduation Program. You cannot receive an Adult Dogwood using only courses completed prior to enrolling in the Adult Graduation Program.
Do I have to write the Numeracy and Literacy Assessments to graduate?
Adult learners are not required to complete the Graduation Numeracy or Literacy Assessments to graduate with the Adult Dogwood. Adult students should be aware that some post-secondary institutions may require assessments/examinations for admission purposes.

iLearn’s program structure allows students to try out far more personal or career opportunities. The structure teaches discipline because all the coursework is all online and it’s on you to set a study schedule. I tried other online schools, but iLearn teachers provided so much help through office hours that the experience is entirely different since I completed most of my work on campus with my teacher. iLearn is great if you are a student who does not have much time, or wants to approach school from a different angle with laptops and 1-on-1 learning. You often do not know what you want before college but at iLearn there are countless opportunities to explore.
