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 who are registered with a public or independent school can also access online learning programs.

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 from 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 to sign up

Contact a school 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.

Provincial Online Learning Schools (public and independent) offer online programs and courses to students anywhere in B.C. 

District Online Learning Schools (public) offer online programs and courses to students residing within their school district’s boundaries.  Check your school district’s website for in-district online learning options.

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).
