The NCE Summer Explorations program offers students entering grades 1–9 weeklong, half-day morning and full-day enrichment classes in June/July. There are classes in science, games and challenges, culture, fine art, crafts, writing, technology, engineering and more to appeal to the inquisitive, active, and creative child. All classes are taught by Needham Public Schools teachers and staff. The relaxed and fun setting of Summer Explorations provides an excellent opportunity for children to develop new skills, make new friends and explore new interests!

Students participating in the full-day program bring their own lunch and enjoy a supervised lunch period with their classmates. The program runs for four weeks, June 28–July 23. Students may register for classes in any or all of the weeks. Summer Explorations will offer programs for rising grades 1–4 at Broadmeadow Elementary School and programs for rising grades 5–9 at High Rock Middle School.

Scholarship assistance is available. Students who receive free or reduced lunch are invited to take up to two half-day morning classes or one full-day class during Summer Explorations at a reduced rate. *Scholarship registrations cannot be taken online.
