Classes begin at the end of the school day. Students are dismissed to the designated NCE waiting area of their school, where they are supervised by the NCE On-Site Coordinator until their instructor arrives to escort the students to their classroom. Classes are 60–90 minutes long, once per week for 6–8 weeks. 

Students may only register for NCE classes at their home school. 

NCE Elementary programs are open to all students. Are there special considerations we should know about so that your child will have a positive experience in the program? If so, please list them in the designated areas of the online registration form.

(As a reminder: Please provide NEDP with a Dismissal Change Form to notify NEDP that your child will be attending their NCE class and returning to NEDP upon its conclusion.)

Registration policies: There are no refunds for withdrawals once a registration has been completed. There will be a $20 administrative fee assessed for all requested changes to original registrations. Classes may be canceled by NCE due to low enrollment, so please register early.
