Adult Education Overview
We help graduated and non-graduated adults of any age earn either a B.C. Dogwood Diploma or B.C. Adult Dogwood Diploma. The Adult Dogwood is awarded after passing five key high school courses.
Courses We Offer
To graduate with an Adult Dogwood students must complete a Language Arts 12 (English 12), along with Math 11 (or 12), and three grade 12 elective courses (of which, one elective could be a Social Studies 11 course).
What is the difference between a Dogwood and an Adult Dogwood Diploma?
It’s important to understand the Dogwood Diploma and the Adult Dogwood are not equivalent.
The Adult Graduation Diploma (Adult Dogwood) is only available to students 18 years of age or older and is awarded after completion of five select courses. The Dogwood Diploma, however, is awarded to students who complete a full course load in grades 10, 11, and 12.

Can credits from post-secondary schools count toward the Adult Dogwood?
Yes, students with qualifying post-secondary credits are eligible for up to two courses worth of credits.
Can old high school credits count toward the Adult Dogwood?
Yes, students can receive credit toward the Adult Dogwood for to two qualifying courses completed while in the B.C. (school-aged) Graduation Program.
Please note that you cannot receive an Adult Dogwood using only courses completed prior to enrolling in the Adult Graduation Program (Adult Dogwood).
Do students in the Adult Dogwood program write the Numeracy and Literacy Assessments?
Adult learners are not required to complete the Graduation Numeracy or Literacy Assessments. However, adult students should be aware that some post-secondary institutions may require assessments/examinations for admission purposes.
What if I don't have time to complete my course?
Students have the opportunity to put their course on hold under extenuating circumstances. Speak with your teacher to discuss placing your course on hold for up to two months.
How do I meet with my teacher?
All meetings with teachers will be held via video conferencing links. Students will be invited to class and/or drop-in sessions with a calendar link.
Students can sign up for office hours using their teacher’s meeting scheduler, which can be found on the course syllabus and in their teacher’s email signature.
Do you provide university planning options for adult students?
Absolutely! Our team is prepared to help with education planning to make sure adult students understand the high school requirements needed to be admitted to certain post-secondary programs.
How quickly are assignments and tests marked?
All assignments and tests are marked with feedback in under 7-10 days. In extraordinary circumstances, marking may take a couple additional days. All grades and feedback can be found on the “Grades” page of the student dashboard.

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.
