Partners in Education
Distributed Learning in Powell River & the Comox Valley

Registration vs. Enrollment

Students registered with a BC school are considered “homeschoolers” and are not required to follow provincial learning outcomes. Registration leaves families free to homeschool by the philosophy, curriculum, and schedule of their choice. Some schools offer modest funding to apply toward curriculum costs.

Partners in Education is an enrollment program. Enrolment differs from registration in that families choosing an enrollment program work with a BC certified teacher and are held accountable to meet provincial learning outcomes.
