We go above and beyond the walls of a classroom because your child does too.
We offer a personalized and flexible approach to education for approximately 2,000 learners from kindergarten to grade 12 each year.
Our B.C. certified educators provide personalized one-to-one learning.
Our foundation supports tuition-free education for residents of B.C.
Your child can graduate with a B.C. Certificate of Graduation, Adult Graduation Diploma or School Completion Certificate. They have the same opportunity to apply for university or college as a child in a brick-and-mortar school.
Our inclusive education program provides equal access to learning opportunities for all learners, by providing personalized support services to learners with special needs.
A supportive learning experience in your home, online and community
Your child takes the lead in their own learning in your own home environment and within your local and online communities, guided by one of approximately 185 B.C. certified educators.
We also engage professional service providers to support your child in areas such as music, art, speech and occupational therapy, physical education classes, and more.
You are an expert in knowing your child and are a valued part of the circle of relationships that include parent, learner and educator.

What our families have to say
SelfDesign has provided us the academic flexibility to focus on our children’s individual needs as well as clarifying our family values and aligning our studies with what matters to us most. Creating a warm, cozy learning environment at home has not only allowed us to connect more deeply as a family but it’s also allowed our children to blossom emotionally while feeling unconditional love and support.”
…Learning isn’t something that happens when a child reaches a certain age, but when there is an intuitive need for knowledge. When they are allowed to learn at their own rate, what they are truly curious
