Summer Scholars

Inspiring Summertime Curricula

Summer Programs

Each summer BNS offers several week-long programs. Each week is theme-based, providing students an in-depth look at a particular area such as geology, theater, space. The Summer Scholars Program is open to the general K-5 community (in addition to, but not limited to, our year-round students).

These programs are typically for elementary students, but we occasionally offer special programs for middle school students. Summer Scholars instruction runs from 9:00 until 3:00, Monday through Friday, with after-program care is available until 5:00 pm, Monday through Thursday. Participants need to bring a bag lunch and snack. No candy or soda please.

The schedule for the 2020 Summer Scholars program will be available in February.
