Each summer Northern Lights operates a summer program for high school-level students. The purpose of the program is to provide opportunities for students to accelerate their high school program.
Summer School PDE Exams are written in two centers: J.A. Williams High School for Lac La Biche, and Bonnyville Outreach School for Cold Lake and Bonnyville Summer School students.

2019 Summer School Applications
NLPS is now accepting applications for 2019 Summer School.
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).
Once you have logged in to your Student Portal account, click on the School Engage icon on the lower left hand side. The Summer School Application Form will be visible when School Engage opens.
Students need to apply using their PowerSchool Student account, not their parent's Parent Portal account. This requires a separate Username and Password. If you do not have a student account set up, please ask your school's administrative assistant for help.
School Engage cannot be accessed through the PowerSchool app. To apply for Summer School you need to log in to the Student Portal in a web browser, preferably on a computer. Link: PowerSchool Student Sign In
