Summer School

Each summer Northern Lights School Division 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. ***
