Welcome to Heritage Christian Online School! HCOS provides three distinctives which enable discipleship to thrive: Christian Educators, Christian Curriculum, and Christian Environment.
If you're new to the distributed learning (DL) program, homeschooling, or just want to find out more about us, please look through Our Brochures and Our Programs. If you have any questions, please visit our Program Details section in the menu bar above or contact us.
HCOS is providing an outline to our families on how we will adhere to the new BC Ministry of Education guidelines on curriculum. HCOS has been dialoguing with other DL schools in BC as we implement the changes, making sure we maintain the flexibility that helps our families in their educational journey. Our updated outline is now available here. Additionally, here is a copy of our new Curriculum on-loan agreement that all parents will have to sign and submit.
A reminder to HCOS Parents and all Lesson Providers: Provincial Regulations now mandate a Criminal Record Check for anyone providing lessons to our students. Organizations need only provide a letter, on official stationary, that a CRC Policy for all staff and volunteers is in place.
Individual Lesson Providers MUST have a CRC done through the Ministry of Justice (RCMP CRCs are not acceptable). HCOS CANNOT process and pay invoices unless a valid CRC or CRC policy has been confirmed. For More information and to apply for a Criminal Record Check, please contact Jameilo in the HCOS office at
