Walled Lake Northern - Summer Programs and Job / Volunteer Opportunities

Summer 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

Alma College is excited to share that this summer we are hosting an array of academic and service camps led by faculty and staff for high school students! These include: Business Scholars Camp, Environmental Science Camp, Global Challenge, and Plaid Serves.

With completion of either the Business Scholars Camp or the Environmental Science Camp, each participant will receive three transferable college credits. Students referred by a counselor to the Business Scholars Camp or the Environmental Camp are eligible to receive a $100 Referral Scholarship. Please have them put “referred by” and their counselor’s name on their registration form.

Prospective students who attend either Global Challenge or Plaid Serves and ultimately enroll at Alma College in the fall of 2018 will receive a tuition credit in the amount of the camp registration in the fall semester.
