Registering as a homeschooler is not the same as enrolling in Online Learning. For information on the differences between enrolling in Online Learning and being registered as homeschoolers see Classroom Alternatives.
Many families choose registered homeschooling as the best way to educate their children. We provide the option for BC families to register their children as Registered Homeschoolers at Pathways Academy.
There are no tuition fees when registering as homeschoolers with Pathways Academy. The registered option does not provide you with the guidance of a teacher or funding for resources. Registered students are not supervised by a teacher and are not required to follow BC curriculum.
How to Register

Will my child graduate with a Dogwood Diploma?
If a student continues as a registered homeschooler for Gr. 10-12 and does not enroll and complete the required courses for graduation they are not eligible to receive a BC Dogwood Diploma. However, a student may register as a homeschooler for Grades K-9 and then switch to enrolled for Grades 10-12 and be eligible to graduate with a Dogwood Diploma. As long as they are enrolled in, and successfully complete, the high school courses required for graduation, they will be eligible to graduate as usual.
If you have any questions about registering as homeschoolers contact our office.
Would you prefer more support & guidance? You might want to consider enrollment in Online Learning instead.
If you would rather have the guidance of a BC certified teacher who will ensure your child's learning plan meets the requirements of the BC curriculum, please consider our enrolled program rather than registering as a homeschooler. Enrolling in Online Learning provides you with support and guidance and access to resources.
