Please select the option that best describes you:

Re-Enrollment

Families currently enrolled with HCOS can re-enroll through Encom for the upcoming school year beginning mid-January until mid-Spring, after which you can call the office to inquire about re-enrolling.

New Family Enrollment

Enrollment for new families is open. We are so glad you have chosen to enroll with us and look forward to supporting you and your children on your education journey.

Reactivate Enrollment

Reactivation is for families that were with HCOS but have been gone for more than one term. Our office staff will be happy to work with you to get your children enrolled.

Registering as a traditional homeschooler.

The registered option is an alternative method of home learning. This approach provides the freedom to school outside of the BC educational system. We welcome and support registered students by providing support from our Registered Homeschool Liaison, consultation with our Curriculum Consultant, and access to resources in the Learning Commons.

Enrolling vs Registering

Enrolling:

  • You want the support and guidance of a BC certified teacher
  • You want feedback on your student’s work
  • You want the funding allocated to enrolled students for curricular support
  • You want full access to all the support options available to students at HCOS
  • You are committed to regular reporting and communication with your teacher

Registering:

  • You want to direct your home education program without the support of a teacher
  • You do not want the requirements of reporting
  • You do not want resource funding
