Cold Lake Outreach School

Cold Lake Outreach School

The Cold Lake Outreach School is a Grade 10-12 Outreach school located in the City of Cold Lake. CLOS delivers the Alberta high school curriculum in an alternative setting and method to that of a traditional school. In addition to the full academic curriculum, this rapidly growing program also offers dynamic option courses.  These include physical education, art, photography, outdoor education, aboriginal studies, cooking/baking, forensics, job safety, and much more.  These programs combined with strong personal and career counseling opportunities, flexible attendance agreements, access to Internet and Library services, and outstanding educational field trips make CLOS a provincial leader in Outreach education.


We believe that our students are life-long learners who deserve a spectrum of creative opportunities to achieve success in a supportive, respectful environment that will provide them with skills for the rest of their lives.



Our community provides individualized education to students within a safe and supportive environment where all participants feel they belong, and have purpose.

We empower all to provide opportunities and guidance for participants to achieve their academic and life goals, as they grow towards an independent future as positive contributing citizens.  

School Values

Our vision lends itself to our values, and what we believe as a staff is important for our students and ourselves.  We model these values to our students, and using values clarification, we teach our students the importance of these values in their lives.

Principals Message

The NLPS Outreach Program continues to provide a successful alternative pathway for students to reach the completion of their high school goals. Like all school programs, it is the effort of each student, with the guidance of the dedicated staff and support of families, that leads to this success. 

Whether a student is planning on completing their high school program through CLOS or picking up some missing credits before moving on, the Outreach program is designed to be as flexible as possible to meet the needs of students and to give students the opportunity to find their path to success.  Our students graduate with either a certificate or a diploma and are able to move into the job market or into post-secondary studies just like any other graduate from a high school in Alberta.

Our Outreach Program continues to enjoy great success, as shown through our high graduation and student success rates, and continues to evolve to maximize the potential for success for our students. 

I am looking forward to another outstanding year for our students here at Cold Lake Outreach School and am proud to again be part of the Outreach family.
