BAA courses must be authorized by Boards of Education or Independent School Authorities (boards/authorities) according to requirements set by the Ministry of Education.

Boards/Authorities wishing to offer Grade 10-12 BAA courses should follow the B.C. Graduation Program Board/Authority Authorized Courses: Requirements and Procedures.

B.C. Graduation Program BAA resources

In cooperation with the Focused Education Resource Services, a searchable BAA Sharing Platform has been created. Boards/Authorities can volunteer to share their BAA frameworks on the platform. Districts or schools accessing BAA courses on this platform will need to seek approval from their board/authority to deliver the courses locally, as per BAA policy.
