Students will be contacted for a phone interview prior to final acceptance.
A review of current marks and previous courses will be conducted for all applicants to determine suitability for the online and condensed format for summer school programs.
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.
Students will be asked to have their own digital device such as a laptop or Chromebook to access their course material. If summer school is allowed to have Face-to-Face instruction, we will have some loaner machines for students to use. If we are online, then students 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 offered but due to Alberta Education policy changes, as a result of Covid-19, every student will be able to choose to write this exam or not with full exemption. Priority enrolment will be given to grade 12 students who needs 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, even if students choose not to write their diploma. This step 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 home 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.
