WEST CALDWELL, NJ - They sing, they investigate, they dance, they craft, they discover - these are just a few of the activities that students from the Caldwells and beyond take part in during the Summer Arts and Sciences Program held at James Caldwell High School (JCHS). Registration for the program, run by the Caldwell-West Caldwell Center for Continuing Education, is now underway, and this year, the program and its final performances will all be held at JCHS with the final arts performance held in the Center for Performing Arts.

The summer program offers a wide range of arts and sciences workshops all run by certified teachers. “The programs are presented with an approach different from what students receive in their regular classrooms,” said Supervisor of Summer Programs David P. Shapiro, Ph.D.  “They are based on the underlying philosophy that learning can be fun, allowing students choose from a wide range of areas that may be of interest to them.”

Both programs run five days a week and classes are available for students entering grades two through ten in fall 2013.  Students need not be from the Caldwell-West Caldwell area to enroll. The annual program culminates with a show where children display their newly learned talents and artwork.
