Supplemental Education Services
The SES program provides individual and small group academic instruction, taught by certified and experienced teachers. Our curriculum targets the specific educational needs and learning styles of each child. Teachers continuously monitor the effectiveness of the programs by using formative assessment and differentiated instruction aligned to New Jersey Core Content Standards in reading, mathematics and language arts. Student Performance Data is used by the teacher to drive instructional programs and improve student performance.

The objective of NCC’s SES program is to engage, motivate and provide children with hands-on, meaningful learning experiences that will maximize their potential and build confidence and proficiency in literacy and mathematics. Our primary goals are to:
Reinforce learning that occurs during the regular school day
Provide time and space for quiet study

Provide educational enrichment activities that spark curiosity and love of learning
The program is 120 minutes of intervention activities during after-school hours four days per week.
