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. 

While some of our Summer Programs existed in the virtual realm this past season, we look forward to seeing you in person next year!


All in-person summer programs are suspended for the 2020 season.

2020 Summer Programs

The purpose of the 2020 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 a five-week period (Monday, July 6 to Friday, August 7), 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 ensuing school year. For questions or concerns please contact Mr. Jon Gonzales jgonzales@newfoundations.org.
