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)

  • Would you like the support of a provincially certified Christian teacher?
  • Would you like your child to receive report cards?
  • Would your child like to work toward a BC graduation diploma (Dogwood or School Leaving Certificate)?
  • Have you graduated and want to upgrade a course(s)?

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

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

  • Do you want to take only some of your courses with RCOA?
  • Are you taking most of your courses at another school (regular campus or distributed learning)?
  • Note: The school where the student takes the most courses in a year is the School of Record (SOR). RCOA will send completed course marks to the student’s SOR. The SOR will report the marks to the Ministry of Education.

If so, then Cross-Enrolment is for you!

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

  • Would you like full control of your child’s educational program, including independence from the Ministry of Education learning objectives? (You will not be partnered with a certified teacher and your child will not receive report cards.)
  • Note: Your child is welcome to participate in some of our face-to-face programming if space allows. Fees will apply. Our K-7 Partners in Education (PIE) program is not available to registered home learners.

If so, then Registered Home Schooling is for you!
