Parents and Students
All Open School BC resources are designed to address learning outcomes as specified by the BC Ministry of Education. As a result, using our resources will complement what your child is learning in school. Open School BC has many complete courses, as well as supplementary resources, to provide students with extra help.
Open School BC resources may be used to help students achieve:
- more practise in a difficult subject
- advanced study in a subject of aptitude or interest
- completion of a missed subject or course
Here are some of the resources designed to help students outside of their regular classes:

Parents and students may purchase almost any Open School BC resource; however, to receive credit for a course, a student must be registered for the course with a BC school district. To find a school, course or program visit Learn Now BC.
Many newer courses have CDs with interactive multimedia to illustrate key concepts. These may be helpful to students even if they are not taking the Open School BC version of the course as learning outcomes addressed in the multimedia are set by the Ministry of Education.
