Collège de l'Île has existed under that name since June 23, 2008, the date on which it received its official title of French-language community college from the government of Prince Edward Island.
In 2006, the Société éducative opened a second Adult Training Centre at the Carrefour de l'Île-Saint-Jean in Charlottetown, making college education available to Acadian and Francophone adults outside the Évangéline Region. Since 2012, the Charlottetown campus has been at 111 Grafton Street.
In 2007, the Société éducative continued its progress by establishing a third center, this one at the Centre acadien de Prince-Ouest in Deblois. This made training accessible in the western part of the province.
In 2008, Collège de l'Île signed a collaboration agreement with the Prince Edward Island Department of Innovation and Advanced Learning, confirming its official status as a publicly funded French-language community college. The agreement was renewed in 2013.
The Société éducative still exists because it is the legal entity behind Collège de l'Île The Board of Directors, responsible for overall management of the Collège, consists of a representative from the Acadian and Francophone community (represented by the Société Saint-Thomas-d'Aquin), the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, the Department of Innovation and Advanced Learning and Holland College, two representatives from the economic sector and one representative each of the Collège's students and its teaching staff.
