Frequently Asked Questions

I attend Chatelech/Elphinstone/Pender. Can I take a course through Spider?

Yes. Most of our students attend local high schools.

How much time do I have to finish a course?

We recommend that students finish within one calendar year but that is not a hard deadline.

Do online courses through SPIDER count for the same credit as a course taken in a classroom?

Yes. Once you finish, it will show up on your transcript along with other courses you have taken.

Are online courses easier than courses taken in the classroom?

No. SPIDER courses follow the same curriculum as bricks and mortar schools.

Can I accelerate through a course with SPIDER?

Yes and no. The courses take as long as they take. We do not allow anyone to finish in less than ten weeks.
