March winds have not yet brought April showers, but many of Wyckoff’s teachers and parents are already thinking about summer. And the Wyckoff Summer Academies are now accepting registrations for a large variety of classes ranging from pre-K to 8th grade.

Last summer was the largest yet for the summer program as registrations more than doubled from previous years. Students had a great time and many parents praised the experience for their children and for themselves. “Thank you for giving my daughter great instruction and loving care. I know that her transition to kindergarten will be seamless,” said one parent. “The teachers seemed very engaged and I liked seeing the pictures posted of what they were doing,” said another parent.

Dr. Barbara Pepe, director of the summer academies, says class offerings are even more diverse this year. "It's the whole gamut from arts and crafts all the way to mathematics," she says. Popular offerings like “Safety Town” for pre-K students will be back, but new classes related to painting, ceramics, mosaics, filmmaking, and Photoshop are being added. All are taught by teachers licensed and certified in New Jersey, nearly all of whom work in Wyckoff’s public schools during the regular school year.

But students in the Summer Academies do not have to live in Wyckoff, Dr. Pepe points out. The program accepts registrations from residents of other towns as well, which means Wyckoff parents might want to give their children a chance to experience a class alongside cousins or friends who live in another town.

The Summer Academies operate two two-weeks sessions. One session begins on July 8 and the other begins on July 22. A school day can include up to four 45-minute classes. Each class costs $100 for the two-week session. Additional information and directions for registering can be found on the Summer Academies' webpage.

“Don't wait,” says Dr. Pepe. “Classes are limited in size. Enroll early before popular classes close out."
