HCOS Grad Program
Heritage Christian Online School - Grades 10 through 12
Grad Program News!
Synchronous Courses are here!!! (For Grade 10)
There has been a lot of success with our Online Synchronous Courses in Grades 5-9 and so this year we'll be opening up the same opportunity for Grade 10 students. What does Synchronous mean? Synchronous means that you start your course in September and end in June - so it will be a linear pace - and you will have weekly face-to-face Zoom meetings with your teachers. For more information about this great opportunity, check out this Article written by our wonderful Grad Director - Chelsea Bitgood.
The Synchronous options will be for Science 10, Socials 10, English 10, Christian Studies 10, and both Workplace Math 10/Foundations and Pre-Calculus 10.

A quick update from the Ministry regarding reporting to Post Secondary schools!
Students can access the StudentTranscripts Service at: www.studenttranscripts.gov.bc.ca/. Students must create a Basic BCeID account to access their information. Students need only complete their PSI selections once in the current school year. Students may add to their selections at any time up through July 12, 2019. Students may make up to 25 selections free of charge within six months after completing their last course. After six months, students will be charged $10 per transcript, payable on the StudentTranscripts Service.
Before students make their PSI selections for this school year, they are encouraged to download the poster and view the following YouTube how-to videos:

Virtual Learning Camp Opportunity!
We’re hosting on a virtual learning camp by the White Hatter group called Leveraging the Internet and Social Media that is aimed at teaching students that their social media persona matters, and how to use it for their future college/job applications rather than have it work against them.
Mrs. Klukas is hosting and all Grad program students are invited to attend.
Please visit here to sign up!
