Exploring interests & sharpening skills.

Our Summer Programs provide opportunities for students to engage with academic and social resources while on summer break.

Students and their families are invited to join NFCS staff and the greater community in a variety of ways to both explore new interests and sharpen existing skills. 

Our 2021 Summer Programs will provide a combination of in-person and virtual experiences. We are working hard to keep our community learning, safe and having fun!

2021 Summer Programs

The purpose of the 2021 Virtual Summer School Program is to reinforce fundamental skills within each grade/subject. The program will provide meaningful practice to assist students in preparing for the next school year over the summer focusing on general standards within grade/subject area to accommodate the needs of all students. The goal of this program is to provide additional individualized support to help your child build upon core subject skills that prepare them for the upcoming school year. 

More information will be available soon!

Due to COVID-19 our K-6 Summer Camp is  canceled for Summer 2021.
