Location, Dates and Hours of Summer School Program:

Wolf Creek Summer School will be held in Lacombe at Lacombe Outreach School. Students will be able to access teachers and course delivery instruction on Monday to Thursday each week from 9:00am to 3:00pm. The school will be available from 8:30am to 3:30pm each Monday to Thursday. Summer School will be held from July 4 to August 11.

The Summer School office will be open on Monday, July 3 for students to finalize registration and meet with course teachers individually before school starts.

Instruction and Course Delivery:

Students attending Summer School will develop an educational plan with a teacher advisor. This plan will include face-to-face instruction in small groups with a teacher as well as self-study completing some online instruction and assignments. Students should be prepared to spend several hours each day on homework outside of regular classes due to the compressed summer schedule.

Some courses may require several hours of extra reading and homework in addition to the time spent at the school. Some students may find that their educational plan allows them to work independently from home and check in with teachers by attending school on certain days while utilizing digital tools such as a Google Hangout.

Students should be prepared to access a digital tool of their own (ie. laptop, tablet, Chromebook) to access course content and complete assignments. Students will be expected to adhere to the attendance requirements listed within their educational plan.

Students will be able to write final exams at the Wolf Creek Summer School in Lacombe for all subjects, including diploma exams. The exam schedule is posted on this website and begins in August. Classes and access to teachers will be available up until each exam is written this summer.
