Earn an Ontario Secondary School Diploma through TVO Independent Learning Centre (ILC) Facilitated Independent Learning Model (FILM) Program!

Borderless Education is a proud official affiliate of the FILM model and under contract with TVO ILC to provide international students access to a widely-recognized Ontario education experience. Courses provided by TVO ILC are developed directly by the Ontario Ministry of Education, delivered by certified Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) educators, with local supports provided by Borderless Education and its partners. TVO ILC is Ontario’s largest high school, with more than 22,000 students enrolled to earn credits towards an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or as prerequisites for post-secondary admission needs.

The FILM model combines the benefits of a highly innovative online learning context with the benefits of a structured, local classroom environment to support student learning and academic success.  Other benefits include:

  • Enabling students to earn an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) at their own pace in less time than a traditional high school.  Grade 12 students may be eligible to earn the OSSD in 10 months!

  • Access to hundreds of courses, which are constantly updated to reflect the latest advancement in content, pedagogy, and technology.

  • Access personalized supports from in-class learning facilitators, discipline-specific OCT teachers, and highly qualified OCT guidance counsellors for post-secondary planning.

  • High academic rigour and integrity: assessments and examinations are administered following strict protocols, maintaining the high credibility and validity of the TVO ILC assessment results and final marks.  

  • The Ontario Secondary Diploma is a globally recognized Diploma that can be used to apply to post secondary school around the world.

  • Cost effective: Students pay substantially less than private international school programs, enroll in a shorter time period, as well as pay for the personalized program that they need.  

  • Students will be assessed for English language proficiency by Borderless Education, without the need for TOEFL, CAEL or IELTS testing for admission into this program. The Borderless Education proficiency examination is approved by TVO\ILC.  Following the testing will be recommendations for course selection or additional English language learning supports as needed.
