Walled Lake Northern - Enrichment Programs and Job / Volunteer Opportunities

Summer School  

Many students consider taking a course in the summer in order to advance to the next course level, make-up credits for classes they have failed (credit recovery), or to make room for other electives in their schedule during the school year. There are also options of online and correspondence classes available.

All students considering summer school or another alternative to earn credit should make an appointment to discuss their plans with their counselor. **Note: all courses taken beyond the school day will be the student's expense.

Summer School Options:

  1. Online classes at Walled Lake Northern via E2020 and Personal Fitness at Walled Lake West
