Any high school student (grades 8-12) across BC can sign up with CHEK ABC to take one or two courses, while still attending their local high school. Courses can be taken outside of their timetable, over the summer, or when a course is not readily available by their school. Students can get credit for activities already engaged in that may not be offered at their local school. For example, Cross Cultural Ministry 12 can be taken when a student is going with his/her youth group/family on a mission trip, or a PE course can be tailored to a student’s sport of choice while they are involved in a sport program.
The school at which most courses are taken is considered the students’ “School of Record”, and holds the student file. If a student is taking only one course with CHEK ABC and another school is the school of record for a student, the parents or student needs to inform the school that the student is taking a course(s) with CHEK ABC.
For students in Grades 10-12, all courses taken with CHEK ABC are free of charge. Grades 8 and 9 courses have a tuition fee of $175.
CHEK ABC is a fully-accredited and recognized organization authorized to offer schooling to students who are studying in Canada with a Student Visa.
Students studying in Canada with a Student Visa are not funded by the BC Ministry of Education. However, they are welcome to take accredited high school courses with CHEK ABC provided they pay the fees per course.
Student fees are payable to Nelson Christian School Society by e-transfer, cheque or money order. Cost per course is $1200.00
Please note: International students must have a current Student Visa. It is the responsibility of the contact person to ensure the necessary valid Visa documentation for the student is in place while studying in Canada.
In the event that a student decides not to continue their studies with CHEK ABC, it is agreed that the paid student fee will be refunded as follows:
- If the student withdraws prior to the agreed start date, full payment of student fee is refundable for a grades 8 and 9 cross-enrolled student. For international students $1000.00 will be refunded.
- No refund of fees will be provided if the student withdraws after the agreed start date.
- In all cases, the Application and Administrative Fee will be retained to cover administrative expenses.
