The South Orange-Maplewood Adult School Children’s Summer Program will run from June 26 through July 21. There are more than 100 classes offered in creative arts, music, science and sports. Students get to choose their own classes (there are five periods in a day) and the day can be as long or short as you like. This summer the program will be located at South Orange Middle School. Students can expect to follow their custom-made schedule each day, be instructed by professional, experienced teachers and be assisted by fabulous teen counselors. The program also offers both early morning drop-off (onsite) and after-care run by the South Mountain YMCA.
Specialty classes range from coding and a musical theater camp to TV production and wizard camp—and nearly everything in between.
The Summer Orchestra Academy provides ensemble lessons and individual mentoring for violin, viola, and cello students entering 3rd through 8th grade. The Summer Band Academy provides ensemble lessons and individual mentoring for woodwind, brass, and percussion students entering 5th through 8th grade. Both Academies culminate with a concert performance. The popular Suzuki violin program will be offered for students who have taken Suzuki violin lessons during the year and wish to continue to the next level.
