ADLC Closure

ADLC will permanently close after the 2020-21 school year. View full details

Registration limits for 2020-21

In consultation with Alberta Education, it was agreed that ADLC does not serve primary students (i.e. provide the majority of educational programming.) Therefore, for the 2020-2021 school year, we will be limiting Student Instruction (SI) course registrations for grades 1-12 to ensure we do not overstep primary programming responsibilities.

Effective for the 2020-2021 school year,

  • students in grades 10-12 will be allowed to register at ADLC up to a total of 17 course credits.
  • students in grades 1-9 may register in a maximum of two ADLC courses.

Note: These caps include withdrawals (i.e. due to the automatic withdrawal policies) but not course deletions. 


At ADLC, we have often seen that when a student registers in two or more CTS/Elective courses at one time, they do not begin some of their course(s) until months after registration. To promote predictable class lists and equitable student access to CTS/Elective courses, within the credit maximum listed above, students will also be permitted registration in a maximum of two CTS/Elective courses at any one time. Once a student completes a course, they can register in another CTS/Elective course, as available. 

For specific details, see the Enrollment Caps & Restrictions document found on the SIS Training Resources webpage.

Please plan accordingly. We recognize this limit may adversely affect some schools. 

Online programming alternatives are available and found on Alberta Education’s Online Learning Directory. Pembina Hills School Division operates Vista Virtual School, and their online courses are very similar to ADLC courses.
