What exactly is Homelinks?

Homelinks is a British Columbia accredited 'blended-learning' program offered with Kootenay Lake Online Learning (OL) Services (Elev8 Program) for K-12 student. We are more than just an online learning program, as we offer a variety of options for digital and book/paper-based classes and/or courses. Together with their parent/guardian and a BC-certified teacher, students co-create an individualized Student Learning Plan (SLP). An SLP is considered a 'living document' that helps to guide and anchor a student in their learning; it provides a roadmap within the context of the BC Ministry of Education Curriculum. Students do the majority of their work at home, but enjoy the support of qualified teachers to help them plan their journey along and throughout their time in Homelinks. Please visit the Creston Homelinks or the Nelson Homelinks programs, respectively, for further information.

Where does Homelinks provide its programming?

A Homelinks programming campus is available in Creston (K-12) and Nelson (K-9) and is staffed with its own dedicated BC-certified liaison teachers. Each campus provides its own slightly unique style and approach towards how it supports each of its unique family communities and learners. We strongly encourage prospective families to connect with the liaison teacher in their residential area to get a taste of the unique flavour of the program or contact us to inquire about Homelinks programming in your area.
