Introducing the Elementary Summer Academy

We want to let you know about a new program that will be available to some Niskayuna K-5 students this upcoming summer.
The Elementary Summer Program aims to provide maintenance of academic skills and intervention for our students of highest academic needs who do not otherwise qualify for summer programming, such as Extended School year (ESY) through special education services.
The program will be a half day (8am – 11am) and run Monday through Thursdaybeginning July 8 through August 1.


START DATE Monday, July 8, 2024
END DATE Thursday, August 1, 2024
HOURS 8:00-11:00 a.m.
LOCATION Hillside Elementary
TRANSPORTATION All families are eligible for transportation to and from the program (within the district)
CLASS SIZE Up to 15 students per class
STAFFING 2- teachers and 1-teaching assistant, per class

This program is by recommendation only for students who meet specific academic criteria. Staff will contact individual families to recommend that their students attend the program. We anticipate those recommendations will be received by families no later than May 1, 2024. 

Parents/guardians will be able to RSVP to the invitation if they are interested. Due to space limitations, a waitlist will be created once program capacity has been reached.

If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Rachael Mann at
