Which type of application will you be applying for this year?

Which application type is best for {{student_id.split(',')[1].split(' ')[0]}} this school year?

Enrolled in Distributed Learning (DL) (Grades K-12)

Below are some questions to guide you in determining if DL enrolment is right for you:

  • Would you like your child to be enrolled in a school where as the parent you partner with the school to take responsibility for the home program?
  • Would you like to help facilitate your child’s home learning in partnership with a BC certified teacher?
  • Would you like your child to be assessed regularly and to receive provincial grade indicators, report cards and a permanent student record?
  • Would you like your child upon meeting graduation requirements to receive a BC graduation certification (Dogwood or Evergreen accordingly)?

If so, then Distributed Learning (DL) Enrolment is for you!

Cross-Enrolled (XE) (Grades 8-12)

The Ministry of Education allows students in grades 8 – 12 to take courses at more than one school. Fees may apply.

  • Are you currently taking most of your courses at another school in BC (regular campus or distributed learning)?
  • Do you desire to have a school other than RCOA as your School of Record (SOR)? (Your SOR is the school where you will participate in graduation celebrations. Your SOR is the school who will report your grades to the Ministry of Education for you. Your SOR is the school where you are taking the majority of your courses.)

If so, then Cross-Enrolment is for you!

Registered Home School Status (Reg HS) (Grades K-12)

Below are some questions to guide you in determining if Reg HS is right for you:

  • Does your family desire the full freedom of Traditional Registered Homeschooling?
  • Do you desire complete control and independence from the Ministry of Education learning outcomes while educating your child at home?
    • Please be aware that this means you will not be able to access the full funding available for curriculum.
    • You will not be assigned a Christian certified teacher to support your progress and no Report Cards will be created for you.
    • Your child is welcome to participate in our Face-to-Face programming if space allows. Our Partners in Education (PIE) program is not available to registered home learners.

If so, then Registered Home Schooling is for you!

Please go back a step in order to select a child before you proceed.
