Founded in 2006, West Coast Adventist School is part of the Seventh-day Adventist educational system. This educational system is the largest protestant education system in the world and has been in existence for over a century. We draw on this experience and combine that with new technology to enable us to bring to you Adventist Christian education no matter where you live in British Columbia or the world. Given the SDA education philosophy of recognizing the role of parents as the primary educators of their children, this school could be a natural fit. For SDA parents, many of whom want an Adventist component in their home educational program, it makes sense that the Distributed Learning option be offered.
We are pleased to be offering the Kindergarten to Grade 12 programs. These programs are fully accredited with the British Columbia Ministry of Education.
What makes us different?
Christian – Is it important for your children to learn in a religious environment, and be able to use Adventist Christian curriculum resources in your DL program? If so, then you should enrol them in a Seventh-day Adventist DL school. Public school DL programs must be secular.
Direct – Parents are an important part of our learning equation. However, each learner is also provided with direct access to his/her teacher, who administers and evaluates the learner’s educational journey. Students can contact the teacher by phone, e-mail, or through direct online tutoring.
Live – With the WCAS program, students will participate in live classes with other students while they are being instructed by the teacher. The number of live meetings will vary. Students in the primary and elementary grades meet once a week in a live class with the teacher while high school students may choose to meet for all classes for every school day.
West Coast Adventist School will provide quality, personalized distance learning based on the individual needs of the student. We will encourage and motivate the student to reach their full potential academically, spiritually, emotionally, and physically.
