NOC’s Summer Virtual School provides students in Kindergarten through 8th grade opportunities to bridge their learning between the end of the Spring semester and the start of the next school year. Each Neighborhood Learning Center focuses on providing academically engaging activities for eight weeks during students’ summer break.
Students can expect to use online learning software that is approved by the Beaufort County School District. Reading and math tutoring will also be provided during the program. Enrichment activities will be provided during the course of the program to promote student interest in STEM, Art, Music, Dance, and many other areas of learning.
NOC invites community members to volunteer at their closest Neighborhood Learning Center or come by to see the rich learning environment. The Summer Virtual School operates Monday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Students participating in the program must be registered by a parent or legal guardian. Transportation is not provided to students living outside of the Learning Center neighborhoods. Parents and families are encouraged to volunteer or donate supplies.
