Frequently Asked Questions

How exactly does this program work?

All our students are enrolled in Provincial Online Learning School (POLS). Instead of completing their work independently at home, however, they attend one of our learning centres daily for in-person academic guidance and support. A full list of POLS can be found here.

How is this program different from Muslim schools?

Muslim schools are registered, government-funded independent schools; this program is not. QLM Learning is a learning centre. Also, Muslim schools only offer up to grade 9. Although we are not a school and we cannot issue academic credits, we offer academic support for ALL high school grades, including grade 12.

Is this an independent school or government-registered online school?

No, QLM Learning is only a learning centre that offers support for enrolled distance learners.

How is this program different from other homeschooling?

Traditional homeschooling that is done entirely by parents does not lead to a high school diploma. In addition, it requires significant time and effort from parents. Traditional homeschooling may also lack social opportunities for students and facilities. This program supports students who are registered with Ministry accredited distance learning programs so they can pursue a high school diploma outside of a traditional school setting. It takes a significant burden off of parents by offering in-person academic guidance & support from qualified teachers.

Will my child receive credits towards their high school diploma?

As long as your child meets all the requirements of their Provincial Online Learning School (POLS) and passes their courses, they will earn academic credits. QLM Learning does not issue any academic credits; the POLS does.

If this is not an independent school, then why are your fees close to that of Muslim schools?

Muslim schools are partially government-funded, meaning a significant source of their revenue comes from the government. This program does not receive any government funding. We feel that our fees are very reasonable for a number of reasons:

  • The program is administered by a BC certified teacher with public and private school experience in Canada and abroad.

  • This is a unique program that offers academic support for students up to grade 12.

  • Compared to other programs such as secular tutoring services and daycares, we believe our programs offer significant value for the price paid. We encourage our clients to compare services and pricing.

  • All our staff are practicing Muslims and students of knowledge or scholars, which is not always the case in Muslim schools.

Please note that we do offer tuition subsidies for parents who demonstrate financial need.
