Flexible options for students

Take some or all of your courses online and connect with your teacher from anywhere using the internet. You can:

  • Combine online learning with in-person classes
  • Take a program or course online, web conferencing, teleconferencing, correspondence, etc.

Homeschoolers in Grades 10 to 12 that are registered with a public or independent school can also access online learning programs.

Changes to online learning

Starting in 2023/24, students can enrol with their local online learning school or a provincial online learning school. Read about changes to online learning.

Learning from home

Online learning makes it possible to learn from home. Some online learning schools also offer in-person learning opportunities and support. 

Online learning is different than homeschooling because it meets provincial education standards:

Kindergarten to Grade 7 students can:

Sign up for a full program at one online learning school.

Grade 8 to 12 students can:

  • Sign up for a full program at one school


  • Take separate courses at different schools or districts

Adult learners can:

Sign up for online learning programs or courses with a school or post-secondary institution. Find information for adult learners.

Contact a school or district to sign up

Contact a school or district that offers online learning to enrol in a program or course. They can tell you how to sign up and provide information about specific course or program requirements.

Some in-person schools may also provide courses at a distance. Get in touch with the school that you're interested in to find out which courses they have available.

If you're a student in secondary school and you're enrolled in courses at more than one school, talk to your school counsellor to make sure your grades are being recorded on your B.C. transcript (as reported to the ministry by your home school).
