Elementary Classes
Check out the catalog of NCE ELEMENTARY offerings for Session 1 (beginning late September/early October). Classes are offered at each elementary school at the end of the school day.  Evening and preschool classes too!  

There are classes that will appeal to every child: sports, arts, crafts, fun science, technology, chess and more.  Afternoon 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 the workshop teacher arrives to escort the students to their classroom.  Most classes are one-hour long, once a week for 5-12 weeks.

Please check our list of available classes.
