Summer School

Summer School 2020

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Summer School 2020 will be a blend of online/virtual classes combined with the opportunity or need to attend in person at times.

Physical Education will require in-person activity time with a teacher (primarily outdoors).

As there will be an online component this year, students will need to have reliable high speed Internet and a device with a camera/microphone.

Watch this video for more details on our plans for Summer School 2020!


Why Summer School?

Why not? There are plenty of reasons you might want to take a summer school course.

  • All classes are 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. - afternoons off
  • Catch up on lost credits
  • Build room and flexibility into your next year's timetable
  • Improve your course marks
  • Begin your apprenticeship program
  • Establish work experience hours for your Dual Credit or Registered Apprenticeship Program

Are you eligible?

You are eligible to attend Summer School 2020 if you are currently enrolled in grades 10 to 12.

If you are entering Grade 10 in September, you can take Physical Education or Career and Life Management (CALM) only.

Students must be under the age of 20 as of September 1, 2019.

Students who are not currently registered with as an NLPS student may apply for summer school, however we have limited spaces available for out of district students.

2020 Applications

NLPS is now accepting applications for Summer School 2020. The deadline to submit an application for Summer School is June 26, 2020.

We strongly recommend you consult with your high school counsellor prior to applying for summer school to determine if it is the best choice for you, as well as the possible impacts on your high school credits and schedule.

You may be required to provide proof of prerequisite completion prior to being accepted into a Summer School course. Your texts, course outlines, and handouts will be provided to you on the first day of class.

Summer School is offered at no cost to Alberta Education students. Registration fees are $190.17 per credit for adult learners and out of province students.

To Apply - NLPS Students

Current NLPS students can apply by logging into their PowerSchool Student Portal account in a web browser (applications cannot be submitted through the PowerSchool app).
