Summer School and Camps

For many years, NDP has provided in-person summer school to increase our academic offerings and provide multiple avenues for advancement.

More than 60 percent of the incoming freshman class and 25 percent of the current student body enroll in summer school classes. The summer curriculum is designed for high school students to gain needed credits for graduation requirements and/or to free up time in their academic year for electives. 

We are committed to providing a robust summer school program for NDP students. Registration for Summer School for rising 10th, 11th and 12th-grade students opened on March 22

Summer School registration for incoming freshmen will open on April 22.

  • All students must wear masks and have their temperature taken when they arrive on campus.
  • All students will be given a break/lunch from 10:45 until 11:15. 
  • The cafeteria will be open for students to purchase snacks during lunch.  
  • Students are required to be in uniform with NDP polo, plain white polo, or NDP spirit t-shirt with uniform bottoms. 
  • Due to the abbreviated nature of the summer school session, it is essential that students are in classes each day to earn credit for their courses. 

Please note the attendance policy: Arizona State Law & NDP Student/Parent Handbook requires that students are present for 90% of the summer course to receive credit. For year-long courses, students may miss no more than two class days (or a total of 11 hours) to earn credit. For semester-long courses, students may miss no more than one class day (or a total of 5.5 hours) to earn credit. Due to the short and intensive nature of the summer term, class attendance is absolutely critical, so please schedule doctor’s appointments/family gatherings/vacations outside of the summer school session. All pre-arranged absences must be approved by the administration.
