General Information

Call 508-647-6670 or email Dan Hausermann at dhausermann@natickps.org with questions throughout the school year.

The Natick Summer Academic Enrichment Program is designed to enhance the educational experiences of youth by providing exciting, fun, and enriching activities and classes for students in many different disciplines.  Offerings at NSA range from science and art, to sports and cooking.  The Natick Summer Academics Enrichment Program is a self-supporting program open to all students without regard to sex, race, religion, color, or national origin. 

  • Classes not having 5 or more students will be subject to cancellation. Sometimes cancellations happen with limited notice, but students will have the opportunity to switch into another class. We apologize for any inconvenience this creates. 
  • Transportation and lunch are not provided.
  • Students are eligible for programs based on the grade they will be entering next fall.

 

Refund Policy: Full refunds will be issued for those who need to cancel up until the day programming begins. Email or call if cancellation is necessary. If a program has started and a refund is needed, a refund of 50 percent of the total cost will be issued.

Waitlist Policy: Sometimes, Enrichment classes fill up quickly. If a class is full, there is an option to be added to the waitlist. If someone decides to cancel or switches out of a class that is full, the administration will fill the open spot with the student who has been on the waitlist for the longest period of time. Often, classes remain full throughout the summer and students might not be pulled off of the waitlist in the end. Please try to sign up as early as possible to avoid joining the waitlist for a class.


All classes are 60 minutes each day, for one week

***Sign up for classes based upon the grade your student will be entering in 2018-2019***

Located at Natick High School

Classes for Week 1 are $36 (4 day week)
