The Bioregional Education Association was created to serve the needs of families wishing to provide their children with bioregional educational experiences. The organization is a BC Society and a Canadian Charity.
The society runs the Oak and Orca Bioregional School and the Oak and Orca School DL (Distributed Learning) in British Columbia under the Independent School Act. Our programs cater to home-learners throughout BC.
"People should be free to find or make for themselves the kinds of educational experience they want their children to have."
The school complies with all BC Laws and all Canadian Laws. We have created these policy compliance notes to help you find the laws that we are specifically bound by as an Independent School and Child Care Facility.
