Programs & Information
The following courses are planned to be offered. Pending enrollment interest, some courses may not be offered.
The method of delivery for summer school will be a hybrid of Face-to-Face and online instruction.
Students taking a 30 level course will be welcome to attend Summer School in person on Mondays and Wednesdays. Students taking a 10 or 20 level course can attend in person on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Courses will be cohorted by instructor and each cohort will have an individual classroom which they will remain in during each day of in person learning. This approach was chosen out of an abundance of caution for the safety and well being of our students and staff but also allows for some in person learning support.
This cohorting model helps to reduce the number of students in a single classroom space so if the need arises that one group would need to quarantine, the group(s) required to do this would be significantly smaller.
This year the Wolf Creek Summer school will again be at Lacombe Composite High School, located at 5628 56th Ave, Lacombe, AB. During their orientation meeting, students will receive their classroom locations for in person support and for the writing of examinations.
Wolf Creek Summer School instructors will provide students with assignments regularly along with instructional support. Students will be able to access teachers and course delivery instruction from 9:00am to 3:00pm on school days - regardless of if they are at home or at school. Students wanting to work outside of these hours will be able to do so independently using the online content and instruction provided to them.
Summer School Students can be a:
- Current Wolf Creek Public Schools student that is under 19 years of age as of September 1, 2020.
- Non-Wolf Creek student (guest student or international student) that is under 19 years of age as of September 1, 2020.
- Adult student (guest student) that is under 20 years of age as of September 1, 2020.
- Students who are completing Grade 9 in June 2021 are eligible to apply.
Course prerequisites, where applicable, must be completed and passed prior to the commencement of the summer school course. Legal identification will be required.
Final Exams and Diploma Exams
Students will write final exams in the Wolf Creek Summer School as determined by their course instructor for all subjects including diploma exams. The diploma exam schedule is below and begins in August. Due to Alberta Education policy changes, as a result of Covid-19, every student in diploma exam courses will be able to choose to write their diploma exam or not with full exemption.
The dates for non-diploma final exams will be set by the teacher and discussed with students in their education plan.

Diploma Rewrite Fees are not included in the Summer School Course Fee. All students rewriting a Diploma Exam, must register online for each exam. Students who do not register and pay the Diploma Rewrite Fee will not have a seat assigned and will not have an exam available to write.
