Online School

Hope Christian School’ s Online school offers teacher-taught Alberta Education accredited courses that have been specifically developed to express a Christian world view in English, Social Studies, Science, Biology and CALM 20. We offer all other teacher-taught courses both online or in a print mode. Through our online school you or your child would have the opportunity to obtain a complete Alberta Education Diploma online without ever having to enter a regular classroom. You instead would participate in an online teacher-taught classroom. So if you want one course or a complete secondary school education, please contact us. At this point there are no tuition fees for Alberta residents under the age of 20.

Hope Christian Online School Graduating Class of 2017

Why should you choose Hope Christian School?

Why consider Hope Christian School for your high school career? 

There are lots of online schools available for Alberta students but here is what makes us stand out: 

  • synchronous classes available in core classes – all core classes offer one semester of synchronous classes where you actually attend class via Zoom and listen to direct instruction from the teacher, get help on questions, meet your classmates, and learn about assignment expectations.
  • recorded classes – all of our “live” classes are recorded so if you can’t make it to class the actual recording complete with student questions is available during the whole term.
  • asynchronous classes available in non-core and opposite semesters – would you rather learn by watching recordings with open deadlines? You can enroll in classes that have a bit more freedom to mesh with your work schedule. Be aware – there are still deadlines!
  • base technology classes – all new students are expected to become proficient in the Office platform by taking Word, Excel, and PowerPoint – the three key programs used for our classes – and Microsoft Office is available for FREE for all our students!
  • E-Learning class – learn how to USE your technology to accomplish efficient learning goals such as moving pictures, keeping yourself safe in the cyber world, merging files — all tasks to make online learning more successful.
  • RAP, Green Certificate, and Work Experience – our school values hands-on learning for all students.  All students can enroll in work experience for 16 credits, Green Certificate (an agricultural technician training program) for 16 credits, or secure their first year of apprenticeship hours in a variety of trades for 40 credits.  CTS options (career and technology) – all students are eligible to take courses in foods, fashion, business management, wildlife, and agriculture to name a few strands.
  • drama and choir – Choir and drama classes are available for Central Alberta students – plus – a summer residential drama camp is available in July.
  • Summer photography classes — residential photography credits are available for students in July
  • unique programming – some of the unique courses we offer at HCS include psychology and sociology courses, forensic studies, religious studies, world religions, and aboriginal studies (great for university entrance)
  • Field trips, scholarship announcements, overseas adventure trips, driver training credits, credits for previous study such as PAL and AHEA have the ability to round out your classes!
  • Personal career counselling and personal timetable adjustments help you connect with your teachers and make sure your education is relevant to what you want to do!
  • Yes, we do have a live graduation ceremony!

HCS is always looking out for unique opportunities for our students – and right now we are exploring the option of DUAL CREDIT programming where Grade 11 and 12 students can take college level courses and receive credit in high school AND college! Pretty cool, eh?

Online Summer School Courses

Hope Christian School also offers a summer school program where students can take or re-take courses or even get a head start on their high school year over the summer. For our summer school we will offer most of the core courses but please check with us first in order to determine their availability.

We also offer the opportunity to be involved in a summer residential camp where you may obtain credits for Drama, CALM20 and/or Photography. These camps will be hosted in the Ponoka, Alberta area. Space for these camps is limited so please apply early if you would like to reserve a spot. Please see the following link for more details.  Please note that as of July 7 we will no longer be accepting registrations for summer courses. If you wish to register with us after that date, you will need to fill out a registration form for the 2017-2018 school year.
