Question ID: 734585
I'm looking to see if there's a Canadian or UK equivalent of the US Calvert school (http://www.calvertschool.org). Specifically I'm looking for: - distance education home schooling program - secular/non-religious - accredited preferred I like the look of Calvert because it provides both curriculum and consumable supplies all in one package, however it is very US centric, so I'd like some alternatives.

Dear CKClark, Here are several organisations/service providers. Please note, that the term "accredited" is problematic here: the US Dept. of Education will not accredit foreign programmes (and also has no authority to do so). These programmes are approved by their own ministry of education. If I understood correctly, it is extremely difficult to home-school a child under the age of 10 in the UK, which is the reason you only have secondary UK schools (in the UK, secondary in this case = 10-17/18, or 4-12). First College <http://www.firstcollege.co.uk/> - equivalent to 4-12. Interhigh <http://www.interhigh.co.uk/> - equivalent to 4-10 ILC (Canada) Elementary and High-School (K-12) <http://www.ilc.org/cfmx/COU/Students/cou_Elementary.cfm?Menu_ID_Sel=8700&Lang_Sel=1> Fraser Valley Online k-12 education <http://www.fvrcs.gov.bc.ca/> School of the Air (Australia) <http://www.assoa.nt.edu.au/> (state-school in Australia, catering to local population that cannot attend school given the distances). Virtual College Birmingham <http://www.virtual-college.bham.org.uk/> The following are high schools Oxford Home-Schoolling (UK) <http://www.oxfordhomeschooling.co.uk/> TutorVista (UK) <http://www.tutorvista.co.uk/> AMDEC <http://www.amdec.ca> The Virtual School <http://www.thevirtualschool.ca/> Virtual High School <http://www.virtualhighschool.com/> These are American, but you might find it interesting: Virtual Schools in Wisconsin <http://dpi.wi.gov/imt/viwis.html> I hope this answers your question.
