Student Information for Registration
Anyone. We accept local and international students on a part-time and full-time basis. You can use our Grade 7 and 8 program as a complementary source for your study or you can complete courses as the main program for completing the Ontario elementary education.
August to October. Registration for our Grade 7 and 8 programs begin on August 1 of each year and continues to the second week of October.
We offer three core courses (English, Science, and Mathematics) and three elective courses (Social Sciences which includes the Canadian History and Geography, Arts and French). The core courses begin early September, the Social Sciences, Arts and French begin in early October, early November and early December respectively. The courses run parallel to each other until early June.
Part-time students are those who enroll in a course of their choice such as mathematics, language, arts to complement their studies either as a homeschooling student or as a student who is already enrolled at the elementary level in a public or private school. Full-time students are those who will take their entire grade courses at BrightKids as they pursue their Ontario elementary education.
At BrightKids, all e-learning instructors are graduates of the Ontario College of Teachers. They are hired through an extensive interview process. At BrightKids, e-learning instructors receive continuous training and their performance is monitored by the school principal for quality assurance.
At BrightKids, we accept students from diverse academic backgrounds. If your child is currently being homeschooled or is taking courses at a public or private school, he/she can still take part-time courses at BrightKids to complement their studies. Students can also transition fully to BrightKids program from homeschooling, public and private schools.
For any reason and at any time, should you decide for your child to exit BrightKids program and transition to homeschooling, public or private school, appropriate documentation (upon availability) will be released to you.
