The Needham Community Education (NCE) Summer Explorations program offers students entering grades 1–9 weeklong, half-day morning and full-day enrichment classes in July. We offer classes on science, games and challenges, robotics, fine art, crafts, imaginative play, technology, fitness, engineering, videography, collaborative games, and more to appeal to the inquisitive, active, and creative child. All classes are taught by Needham Public Schools teachers and staff and local education professionals. 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 will bring lunch from home and enjoy a supervised lunch period with their friends. Participants in our full-day programs will also enjoy a daily, 40-minute, gym-based, Fun and Games unit. The program runs for four weeks, July 5–July 28. Students may register for classes in any or all of the weeks.

Scholarship assistance is available. Scholarship assistance is available for Needham Public Schools students with financial hardships. NCE will provide a 75% tuition reduction, per student, to be applied to the Summer Explorations week of their choosing. No student will be denied access into any NCE program because of inability to pay. Please contact the NCE office for more information at [email protected] or 781-455-0400 x5.
