SPIDER Secondary Online Learning:
- SPIDER Secondary offers online grade 10-12 courses which lead to graduation. We cater to home schooled students, students from the local high schools taking courses at their own pace (faster or slower), adults who are completing a high school diploma and adults who are upgrading.
- These courses are offered in a blended format. This means that all of the course content is online but students also have the opportunity to meet one on one with their teachers. Our courses are developed through the BC Learning Network which supplies courses to 50 districts in the province and to BC-curriculum international schools across the globe. Our teachers are all BC certified subject specialists who have years of experience teaching both in the classroom and in online learning centres.

- Tuition-free courses are available for adults who want to earn a high school diploma or upgrade their academic qualifications for a post secondary program. We offer self-paced online courses taught by subject specialist teachers. You can start a new course any time and access your lessons anywhere, but we also have a drop-in adult classroom in Sechelt where you can get one on one help from a teacher.
