Link On Learning's K8 Virtual School is a recognized online private school that is located in Newmarket, Ontario.
Established in 2002, it was founded as Canada's first completely online elementary school for kindergarten to grade 8 students. We have been the preferred schooling method for many families for almost two decades. Our teachers are Ontario certified, undergo police checks for safety, and have years of experience teaching online.
The school offers a quality, flexible alternative to traditional schooling for both full-time and part-time students located in Ontario and around the world.

I founded the school almost 20 years ago with one goal in mind: to help students.
When we started there were no other online elementary schools in Ontario. We wanted an approach that was specifically designed for kids that would be effective for a variety of learning styles.
It’s been an exciting journey collaborating with teachers, instructional designers, tech gurus, parents, and students. It's been such a privilege to watch the program grow and see the positive impact it has had on so many students and families.
In these unprecedented times, we are happy we can help.
Yes, Link On Learning's K-8 Virtual School is an Internet-based private school in Ontario and is recognized as such. The school was founded in 2002 as the first of its kind in Canada. Since it was established, many have attended enjoying the benefits, quality and flexibility that this online learning program has to offer.
There is limited space because we keep the class sizes small. This way students can receive the support they need. To help the community during these times, we are investing in extra teaching, tech, and support but there is still limited capacity.
Each student will have their own timetable. Timetables include 5 school days per week:
JK - SK should spend 3 hours per day
Gr 1 - Gr 3 should spend 3.5 hours per day
Gr 4 - Gr 6 should spend 4 hours per day
Gr 7 - Gr 8 should spend 5 hours per day
The student needs a computer or laptop with a keyboard and mouse, Google Chrome Web Browser, Adobe PDF Reader, MS Word, and a good Internet connection. Other supplies include calculator, graph paper, notebooks, pens, and pencils, etc. Parents must provide all of the equipment and supplies to the student.
