Enrichment Opportunities

Enrichment opportunities are especially important to student growth and development. Whether you participate in sports, clubs, after-school programs, peer mentoring, summer camps, or other extra-curricular activities, you will be more prepared and equipped for higher education, and employment. Through these initiatives students are able to enhance their academic and social skills, generating a resume for the future.

Enrichment programs may focus on music and fine arts, learning, athletics, building a variety of skills, and so on. During the year, the Guidance Department receives information from community-based organizations, non-profit operations, religious organizations and universities offering such programs for young adolescents.

We plan on using this website to convey these opportunities to parents and students in our school district, and challenge you to take advantage of these great resources to discover something meaningful and rewarding.

The Natick High School Guidance and Counseling Department does not endorse one program over another but offers this list for information purposes only.

If you would like to advertise your opportunity with us, please contact Donna Slattery @ dslattery@natickps.org.
