Welcome to North Vancouver Online Learning

North Vancouver Online Learning (NVOL) offers a variety of academic and elective courses from Grade 8-12.  We are proud to provide 2600+ students and adult learners on the North Shore and across BC with a flexible, personalized pathway to completing a BC Dogwood Graduation Diploma or an Adult Dogwood Graduation Diploma. 

Our continuous registration process, and 'anywhere, anytime' asynchronous instructional model, allow students to combine online courses with their regular, in-person courses at mainstream schools. This flexibility allows students to take additional courses or adjust their schedules to meet the demands of athletic programs or part time work schedules. We also support both youth and adults who have not yet graduated or require additional courses for post secondary entrance.

We offer a "blended" approach to online learning by providing students with regular access to our North Vancouver Online Learning Centres. Our main NVOL Centre is located at Mountainside Secondary School in North Vancouver. We also have NVOL Centres located at our mainstream secondary schools. These centres are open by appointment in 2020-21 to allow students to access face-to-face academic support, attend tutorials, and write unit tests and exams.

Our program has a new name this year  - The North Vancouver Online Learning Program (formerly the North Vancouver Distributed Learning School). This name change, along with a new logo, are part of the rebranding of our program. 

A fresh new look and an expansion of our course offerings has been a focus this year.  We now offer 7 NEW courses, including 4 for *French Immersion Students:
