How do we differ from other online schools?

Our students can work at home (24/7) or in our computer lab and get help from certified teachers.

Any course you complete with us is acceptable at any secondary or post secondary school in Canada. Graduates from our school receive the same Dogwood Diploma issued by any High School in BC.
