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 home-learners all over the province.
"People should be free to find or make for themselves the kinds of educational experience they want their children to have."
