How do we differ from other online schools?

Our students can work at home (24/7) or in our computer lab and get help from certified teachers.

Any course you complete with us is acceptable at any secondary or post secondary school in Canada. Graduates from our school receive the same Dogwood Diploma issued by any High School in BC.

Our NEW Columbia Square Learning Centre site at #200-1065 Columbia Street will open on JULY 4.

The old Columbia Square Adult Learning Centre site at 1001 Columbia is now CLOSED. All online courses for adults will NOT be accessible until Monday July 4th, 2016. 

If you are currently enrolled in an online course you will be given access again on July 4th and will be able to continue from where you left off. You will NOT have to register again unless you want to start a new course. Please email your teacher if you have any questions (staff emails).

Our new location at #200 - 1065 Columbia Street is in the same mall but we are now located at the corner of Columbia Street and Royal Avenue (near Save-On-Foods, between the Government Liquor Store and Oxygen Yoga).
