About

Summer School Format

Summer School will be "in person" at Lacombe Composite High School (5628 56 Ave, Lacombe, AB T4L 1G6). Our experience tells us that students are more successful when they are in person, directly in front of their teacher.  However, there is room for flexibility on this point for a variety of reasons.  Some learning may be done online at home.  Please discuss this with the Principal.

ALL exams must be done in person, at the school.  

Typically, students may select only ONE COURSE to complete during the summer school program due to the condensed and intense nature of the program. 

The summer school course will be the full course content broken down into daily learning activities and assignments. Most days will require the students to work 5 to 6 hours per day of instruction. It will be expected that students meet the teacher and course expectations for all daily assignments and course deadlines.

Device Requirements:

Students will be asked to have their own digital device such as a laptop or Chromebook to access their course material.  Summer school will have some loaner machines for students to use while on our premises.  If the need arises and students are online, then they MUST have their own device.

Diploma Level Courses in Grade 12:

For those wishing to enroll in Grade 12 courses, a diploma exam will be mandatory. Priority enrolment will be given to grade 12 students who need a course to graduate.

ALL students who are taking a Diploma Exam course must register themselves for the diploma exam through MYPASS, https://public.education.alberta.ca/PASI/myPass. This is a necessary step and can not be completed until after July 1.

Accommodations Not Available:

Students who have utilized special accommodations for course work or exam writing under Alberta Education guidelines in your regular school during the regular school year should be advised that the summer school program is unable to provide these same accommodations and provisions. Summer School compresses a semester’s worth of course materials into 20 days and requires dedicated time outside of these school days to complete the course assignments. Additional supervision of special accommodations are not provided during Summer School.
