How do I register?
All students are expected to complete a registration package prior to official acceptance into our school. Registration begins in the spring with an appointment, and a follow up intake appointment for programming occurs in the fall. Click on the link below to start the online process FOR NEW STUDENTS ONLY.
Students must phone the school (for both new and returning students) to make a personalized admissions appointment. We will set up a time for you to meet with a staff member and create your personal program that best meets your needs.
Students presently enrolled at Ponoka Secondary School, who would like to enroll in one or more courses at the BRICK Learning Centre, must contact a PSC Administrator at 403-783-4411 prior to registration.
Please note that all students who reside outside the boundaries of Wolf Creek School Division will need to fill out and submit a Cross Boundary application package. They will be notified of acceptance into the program by administration.
Filling out a registration form does not guarantee you enrollment in our school. Please call the school if you have any questions regarding enrollment.
Please note that all students who reside outside the boundaries of Wolf Creek School Division will also need to fill out and submit a Cross Boundary application package. The links below will take you to the form but you can not submit them online. Feel free to print them out to be submitted to the school.
All new students (in and out of division) must also complete an intake interview at the school. Forms can be brought with you to the intake interview or completed on site.
What is Powerschool Registration
We are using Infosnap to register all students' enrollment into PowerSchool. This registration process replaces annual paper registration packets, saving valuable time. The new system is a secure process that allows the school to verify all student information prior to the start of the new school year.
Don't Own a Computer?
- Our school will have a computer available for parents that do not have access to a computer or the internet.
- The PowerSchool registration program is mobile friendly, meaning that you can use your smartphone to register.
Don't Own a Scanner?
Bring your supporting documents into the school in order to ensure your registration is complete. Alternatively, there are free Apps that will allow you to scan your documents on the go from your mobile phone or tablet and export them as jPEG or multi-page PDF files. Check a few of these out:
What happens once I have completed my application?
- Follow up with a intake appointment.
Fall start up
- All students wishing to attend the BRICK Learning Centre (formerly Ponoka Outreach) must phone and make an appointment for an planning interview. Intake week runs the first week of September, and it is during this time that we will sit down with you and help you plan your studies.
Full-Time Outreach Students
- Once your application is completed and approved you need to make an appointment time to meet with staff to plan courses and to discuss your needs and graduation goals.
- In your registration meeting you will be invited to plan your personal attendance preferences – e.g. am or pm, and to specify what days of the week you are committing to school work. We have found that student success is directly linked to the amount of time a student spends communicating with their teacher.
- Full-time students are expected to complete courses in a timely manner. Full time students must complete at least 15 credits a semester.
- Finance Students (Skill Development Program)
- Full-time students, who are funded by student finance through Human Resources, and receiving a living allowance, must attend a minimum of 20 hours per week.
Part-Time Outreach Students and Shared Students
- Once your application is completed, and approved you need to make an appointment time to meet with school staff to plan courses and to discuss your needs and goals.
- Part time students must complete 10 credits a semester.
What does it mean to audit a course?
- A student may wish to take a course for information only. Feedback would be given on modules completed. However, no final exam would be given and no mark in the course would be given.
Once you are accepted into the program, specific attendance expectations will be established with the principal and your teachers. All students start with two course. Timelines for course completion will be set at your registration appointment. The general guideline for starting courses is that after completing a module in a course, a subsequent course may be started if consistent progress and commitment has been demonstrated. It is expected in most cases that a course will be completed in 3 months. When you wish to start a course contact the school administrator for assistance.
* NOTE: At registration time, digital pictures will be taken of all students who attend the BRICK Learning Centre.
