Before and After Care

The NSU University School campus is booming with activity at the end of each school day as more than 75% of our students are involved in either fine or performing arts opportunities, athletic events, and/or community service or club activities. Our students utilize these after school activities as way to connect with their school, establish friendships, and ultimately contribute to their community.

Students who are not involved in these activities can take advantage of one of many fee-based after school programs.
