BC Curriculum – Learning Areas


Today we live in a state of constant change. It is a technology-rich world, where communication is instant and information is immediately accessible. The way we interact with each other personally, socially, and at work has changed forever. Knowledge is growing and information is changing extremely quickly, creating new possibilities. This is the world our students are entering.

British Columbia’s curriculum responds to this demanding world. To develop new models, the Ministry consulted with education experts both locally and internationally. They agree that to prepare students for the future, the curriculum must be student-centred and flexible, and maintain a focus on literacy and math skills, while supporting deeper learning.
What and how we teach our students provides flexibility for teachers, while allowing space and time for students to develop their skills and explore their passions and interests. The deep understanding and application of knowledge is at the centre of the new model, as opposed to the memory and recall of facts that previously shaped education around the globe for many decades.
Our curriculum maintains a focus on sound foundations of literacy and math skills. These critical skills are the foundation of B.C.’s education system, and are a key component of developing an educated citizen.
B.C. students are at the centre of the curriculum and ensuring their success continues to be our driving force.
