SUMMER LITERACY CAMP – LITERACY camp is a educational program that is a fun and engaging place for your child to practice his/her reading and writing skills. Each day kids participate in either a fun craft, science experiment, or game, as well as work on reading, writing, and spelling. The program is differentiated according to your child’s current level, and accommodates struggling-readers as well as students who need a challenge over the summer. This structured and exciting program will help prevent “summer slope” so that your child is ready and prepared for the school year in the fall.

“Can you believe it? Truly an amazing day! But these kids couldn’t have done it without the support of the staff and teachers at NDPA. One of the many reasons I feel truly blessed to be a part of such an amazing school.”

SPAIN SUMMER EXCHANGE PROGRAM – Israel Jarabo, a former NDPA JH teacher, has a group of students in his current school, ages 13-16, who are interested in doing a summer exchange with NDPA students. This is a great opportunity for families to host a Spanish student and help them experience American culture and, in return, help your student learn more about Spanish culture. Mr. Jarabo will facilitate the exchange program, visitors to Spain will go to his home town of San Vicente del Raspieg (information about the city here: https://www.immoabroad.com/blog/spain/alicante-costa-blanca/sant-vicent-del-raspeig).
