Summer School


Registration for the 2018 Summer School Program is now closed.

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 Centralized High School for Cold Lake and Bonnyville Summer School students.
