Registered Home Schooling

Abbotsford Virtual School acts as a location for registration for homeschooled children in our community. 

Please note the differences between registered Homeschooled Children and those enrolled in the Online Learning program:

  • Students can be registered as homeschooled children within the school district where they reside, either a public, francophone or independent school.
  • Homeschooled children's educational program is the responsibility of the parents or guardians.
  • The educational program is directed and supervised by the parent. 
  • Homeschooled children do not have to meet provincial standards
  • They are not inspected by the Ministry of Education.
  • Homeschooled children do not receive a British Columbia Dogwood graduation certificate.
  • Homeschooled children may write Grade 12 provincial examinations at their registering school and receive a Ministry examination mark (not course).

You can visit the Ministry of Education website for further information on Distributed Learning and the differences with Homeschooling programs.
