Thanks for a great summer-we look forward to seeing your children next summer!

Summer Explorations Program
Summer Explorations offers students entering grades 1-9 more than 90 weeklong, morning, afternoon and full-day enrichment classes in July. There are classes in science, sports, fine and performing arts, culture, cooking, crafts, technology, engineering and more to appeal to the inquisitive, active, and creative child. All classes are taught by Needham Public Schools teachers and other trained education professionals. The relaxed and fun setting of Summer Explorations provides an excellent opportunity for children to develop new skills and to explore new interests!

Students participating in both morning and afternoon sessions bring their own lunch and stay for a supervised lunch period with their friends. The program runs for 4 weeks in July and students may register for classes in any or all of the weeks.  Classes are held at two Needham Public Schools (locations to be announced in January 2019).
