After-School Sites Enrolling Now
NAZA-sponsored programs are at 26 MNPS middle schools this year. To find a NAZA site in your area, select your geographic area under the "After School" tab to view the NAZA-sponsored programs in your area. Enrollment forms for all NAZA-sponsored sites will be available in the office of participating schools on August 3rd.
Fall Semester: August 29 through December 15
Spring Semester: January 9 through April 27
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...)... Many sites also offer transportation home.
