Enrollment & Site information for 2015-16 School Year

Enroll Today. Enrollment forms are available at the school office in middle schools that are NAZA partners. Please visit our "After Zone" page to see which schools have NAZA sites.

 

Fall Semester: September 14 through December 17

Spring Semester: January 11 through April 14

NAZA sites operate Monday through Thursday for 2 hours at the close of the school day. Research has shown that students receive the most benefit from the sites when they participate the full 2 hours. Additionally, students and families are asked to commit to attending the program for at least one semester.

A typical day at a NAZA site includes a snack followed by 45 minutes to an hour of  engaging academic help (book club, STEM activities, homework help, writing activities, etc...). After academic time, students participate in 45 minutes to an hour of skill-building enrichment activities (dance, visual art, pottery, step, acting workshops, spoken word, sports activities, etc...).

Please see the "After Zone" page for NAZA sites in your area.

Celebrating Afterschool

Each year in October the Afterschool Alliance celebrates "Lights On Afterschool" to highlight the achievements of the 10 million students in afterschool programs across the country. This year NAZA joined thousands of other communities in this celebration through our "Lights on in the Library" event. Several Metro Schools librarians volunteered to stay after school to host our afterschool students in their middle school libraries. The librarians taught students how to access books and media through "Limitless Libraries," and Book 'em Nashville donated over 1,000 books so all the students took home a book of their choice. A special thank you to Book 'em and the many MNPS librarians who volunteered to provide a wonderful celebration for our students!
