Lower Mainland East
Welcome to the Lower Mainland East web page. This is where you can find specific information pertaining to the Lower Mainland East Region. All Lower Mainland families who live east of 200th Street have been placed in this region. Please check out our other Grad Program pages as well to find general information that pertains to all students at Heritage Christian Online School.

NEW COURSE DESCRIPTION WEBSITE
You are not going to believe the new course description website. It is going to answer all the questions that you might have had but could not find out except by asking me. Please check it out! It has detailed course descriptions, and many ways to filter courses. That is a good thing because we have over 150 course offerings for high school students. That is something for everyone!
Gearing up for the 2020/2021 school year
The month of May is the time of year that we really gear up and begin planning for the next school year. The first thing that you need to ensure is that you have re-enrolled for the 2020/2021. What this does is it puts you on the radar of your Grad Advisor so that we can reach out to you during the planning stage.
Grad Program Students (10-12)
There are many important websites that we have assembled for you to assist in your planning. I recommend that over the next few weeks, pick one or two a week to familiarize yourself with.

Adding courses for 2020/2021
Registration for courses for the 2020/2021 will open in May. Please fill-out the Course Planning document with courses your student has completed and also which courses they hope to take in 2020/2021. I would love a copy of your plans so that I can connect with you and assist you as needed.
If you have any questions, I am happy to help.
