Summer Institute for the Arts

NNPS is offering a modified Summer Institute for the Arts for this July, 2021. This year it will be structured as an intense 3 week experience for students wanting to concentrate in their area of talent and expertise. It is not a program for beginner students with no experience in their chosen arts area. They need to have successfully completed a minimum of 1 school class on their music instrument or in their arts field. Participation in the full 3 week experience will earn a 1 semester high school credit.
