School Application

RCOA  is an Online Learning (OL) Christian School that serves home-educating families from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Graduates of our enrolled programs earn a Dogwood Diploma, Adult Dogwood Diploma, or a School Completion Certificate. We offer enrolled, cross-enrolled and registered options.

Please note that the application fee of $25 is non-refundable. This fee covers administrative costs and helps us ensure a thorough evaluation of each application (fee not applicable for registered homeschoolers).

Applications for the 2024/25 school year are accessible as follows:
  • Returning RCOA families are invited to re-enrol/re-register as of February 1st, 2024
  • New-to-RCOA families are welcome to enrol/register as of March 1st, 2024

We are currently waitlisting applications for our Special Education (SE) department and our Learning Supports (LS) program. Application fees still apply.

Cross-Enrolled (XE)*: Grades 8-12
  • Do you only want to take some of your courses with RCOA and the rest with another school?
  • Are you taking most of your courses at another campus and/or online learning school?

If so, then RCOA Online Learning Cross-Enrolment is for you!

*Due to capacity constraints, our Special Education & Learning Support departments are unable to accept cross-enrolled students with SE/LS needs. The School of Record (SOR), typically the school where the student takes the most courses annually, will receive and report the completed course marks sent by RCOA.

Homeschool Registered (HS Reg)*: Grades K-12
  • Do you prefer independent control of your child's educational program without Ministry learning objectives, teacher partnership, or report cards?
  • Would you like to access the registered lending library and some online subscriptions?

If so, then RCOA Registered Home Schooling is for you!

*Registrations submitted after September 30th will incur a $100 per family fee. Consider enrolling in our OL program for access to RCOA's onsite and virtual programming.
