Thank you for choosing DESK

Please note: Although DESK has been deemed a 12 month school and thus not subject to job action the teachers’ strike has had some effects.  We are no longer able to offer Foundations of math and Pre-calculus Math 10, Foundations of Math 11, Pre-calculus Math 11, Physics 11, and Chemistry 11 and 12 as the teacher has been transferred and we are unable, at this time, to post and fill.

For secondary courses  (10-12) please use the above registration link(s).  For consulting about 10-12  courses please call Ron Kilgour (250-5057011 or 250-354-4311 – extension 7011 or 1-800-663-4614 extension 7011.
