Exam Schedule

Final Examinations 

Alberta Education Diploma exams will be scheduled during the last two weeks of each semester. Provincial Achievement Tests are scheduled during the last two weeks of June as mandated by Alberta Education. These examinations are compulsory and all students are required to write them. Teachers in consultation with administration may arrange an alternate examination for students when extenuating circumstances warrant.

High School Diploma examinations mandated by Alberta Education cannot be re-scheduled but arrangements may be made to write the exam at the next sitting for the exam.
