Important TLC Information


The Traditional Learning Centre program is an alternative program offered by the CBE in the elementary and middle/junior high years.  Thomas B. Riley School currently has TLC students in grades 6-9.  As space allows, new students are accepted into the TLC program through the CBE lottery process. This process begins following the open house in January, and all completed registration packages must be received at the school by noon on the Tuesday prior to Teachers’ Convention.  For more information about the program, registration, the lottery process and for important supporting documents, please visit the CBE’s Traditional Learning Centre page ( )
