Welcome to Summer School 2018!
Summer School is an opportunity for students to free up room in their timetables for other courses or to upgrade marks for post-secondary. Our high school credit courses are open to both high school and mature students.
Students entering Grade 10 in September 2018 are eligible to enroll in Physical Education (PE10), Career and Life Management (CALM) Extreme CALM/PE10, and - new this summer - Extreme CTS: Film Production
Bus service may be available this summer for those students requiring transportation from Fort Saskatchewan to Sherwood Park. Availability of bus service will depend on sufficient interest. Register for busing online.
Credit courses are held at Salisbury Composite High School (SAL) and FR Haythorne Junior High (FRH). Please see Credit Schedule section below for more information.
