We believe that parents are vital to a child’s education. It is a great privilege for a child when he or she receives a quality education, in a home setting, with loving, supportive, and familiar adults. This kind of education has a long history that predates the era of modern education which sees children leave the home to spend the day in a structured classroom environment.
CHEKABC is a Christian organization with a focus on assisting parents who have chosen to break with the classroom environment to provide accredited education in their own home environment. It has been engaged in this work ever since the Province of BC first authorized independent schools to offer what is called “Distributed Learning” to students. A CHEKABC teacher comes alongside parents to give personal assistance as they seek to provide their children with education to meet the child’s needs and promote family values within the context of Christian faith. Today CHEKABC serves students in all parts of BC and has received high commendation from parents for its Christian emphasis and its excellence in service.

Designed so that every student can experience success in an accredited program leading to the Provincial High School Diploma (Dogwood) for most post secondary school entrance requirements, or the BC School Completion Certificate.
Courses can be paper based, online, or a combination of the two. For example, hard copy textbooks can be used while work is submitted online. Working online would mean accessing course material and assignments online, interacting online with a teacher, and submitting work online.
Students currently enrolled in BC secondary schools may enroll in online courses to experience a different learning environment, retake a course, reduce the amount of time it takes to complete the high school program or simply have more flexibility in the program.
Online high school courses are free for all BC Canadian Citizen/Landed Immigrant school-age students. The Online High school is a division of CHEKABC is funded by the Ministry of Education to provide education to students in BC. All courses are mediated through the CHEKABC Online School, hosted by Moodle.
The Online High School accepts students from other independent and public schools from across BC. Students are able to cross enroll in one or more of our grade 10, 11 and 12 courses at no cost to the student.
The BC Ministry of Education provides extra funding for “severe disabilities” These disabilities are described according to levels 1, 2 and 3 with level 1, Dependent Handicapped and Deaf/Blind receiving the highest level of funding.
