Highschool In-Person & Virtual Programs

Highschool Programs

Grades 8 & 9 Homeroom HUB and the Homeroom Teacher Approach

Starting high school is exciting and a big change. Launch into the adventure with great friends and support through our homeroom programs. 
Homeroom HUB

Homeroom HUB stands for Helping Us Bridge, and this program provides a strong, structured transition into high school and prepares for the Gr. 10-12 Grad Program! At the centre of the HUB is the homeroom teacher who will serve as your primary support for any questions you have. 
This is a dynamic, blended, cross-curricular program consisting of weekly in-person classes, virtual instruction, and online learning. Homeroom HUB covers Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Career Education, and ADST. It is similar to our K-7 Partners in Education program and is available only to RCOA-enrolled learners.

 Grade 8-12 Homeroom Teacher

RCOA’s Homeroom Teacher (HRT) program makes all the difference in high school home learning! Every RCOA-enrolled Gr. 8-12 learner is assigned an HRT who will be your go-to person for general questions and concerns. This teacher will usually also be one of your course teachers, and will reach out to share important information, help advise, and be your point-person for support.

Grades 10-12 Grad Program Options

B.C. Certificates of Graduation are awarded to learners who successfully complete the provincial graduation requirements. Learners require a minimum of 80 credits to graduate with a Dogwood Certificate. Click here for details.

Customize Your Learning Plan

Build a program during your consultaion with any combination of:
In-Person, Hybrid & Livestream Classes, Clubs, and Activities

These are the cornerstone of our school as we strive to create opportunities for relationship building. We have carefully chosen an eclectic mix of experiences. All opportunities are taught and guided by Christian teachers and instructors.

Online Courses

These take you through a course step-by-step in Brightspace as you read and view information, upload assignments, and have the support of a course teacher.

Individualized Courses

Collaborate with a certified teacher to select your curriculum and completely customize these courses. These are offered in a limited capacity; contact an advisor to inquire. Work is uploaded to the online platform, Brightspace, as you stay in touch with your teacher.

RCOA teens build community connecting face-to-face in our
on-site, hybrid and livestream classes, clubs, and activities.
