Welcome to Nueva Expedition!

Nueva Expedition is now full for this summer! Thank you so much for your interest!

We are excited to introduce Nueva Expedition, a brand new program for high-abilty campers entering grades one through four! 

Nueva Expedition is a one-week, immersive experience centered around real-world explorations in science, math, literature, and culture. In an effort to imbue this program with core Nueva values, these explorations will be interdisciplinary, thematically linked, and emergent — to the extent that this is possible in a one-week program.

The mission of Nueva Expedition is to provide a dynamic and engaging experience to enrich and challenge both current Nueva students and other equally talented students in area schools. Towards that end, there is a straight-forward application process for campers applying from outside Nueva.

As is outlined in the enrollment process, families wishing to apply to Nueva Expedition with children not currently enrolled at our school will be asked to submit: a copy of your child's most recent transcripta teacher's letter of recommendation (that introduces us to your child as a learner and classmate), and if availablea copy of your child's most recent standardized test scores. We will be able to process campers when all application materials are received. *Please send your materials to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. AND please include "Expedition Application_Last Name" in the subject area.

This summer, the program will be offered twice: first, during the week of 7/10-14 and then again, from 7/17-21.
