Our Story

Welcome to RCOA! We are an accredited K-12 online education school based on the vision of Mark and Carolyn Langley. They shared the idea for an online learning school with leaders of Regent Christian Academy in Surrey, and RCOA was established by the Regent Christian Academy Society in May 2005.

At RCOA, we are committed to meeting the needs of home learning families across British Columbia by providing both onsite and home-based, as well as virtual learning opportunities. We are intentional about building relationships throughout our communities and strive to make a positive impact on the lives of our students and their families.

Our mission is to grow in grace and knowledge as we shine the light of Jesus in all that we do. We believe that every person we serve is unique with immense potential, and we are dedicated to supporting them on their journey to academic and personal success as an act of worship to God.

Thank you for considering RCOA as your partner in education. We look forward to serving you and your family!

Our Statement of Faith

We believe. . . the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God

(2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21)
Statement of Faith

We believe . . . 

  1. the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21).
  2. there is one God, eternally existent in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30).
  3. in the deity of Christ (John 10:33), His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35), His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, Hebrews 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9), His resurrection (John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:4), His ascension to the right hand of God (Mark 16:19), His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).
  4. in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature; and that we are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith alone we are saved (John 3:16–19, John 5:24, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:8–9, Ephesians 2:8–10, Titus 3:5). 
  5. in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost—the saved to the resurrection of life, and the lost to the resurrection of condemnation (John 5:28–29).
  6. in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12:12–13, Galatians 3:26–28).
  7. in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13–14, 1 Corinthians 3:16, 1 Corinthians 6:19–20, Ephesians 4:30, Ephesians 5:18).
  8. marriage is a covenantal partnership established between one biological man and one biological woman intended for the good of both spouses (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6; Ephesians 5:31)
