The SEEK program accepts students on a first come, first serve basis. Priority is given to returning students from summers past.
Notifications Sent: Upon confirmation and bi-weekly basis beginning in February 2013
Students will be sent an acceptance or waitlist notification. Students placed on the waitlist will be considered in order of application submission date if spots become available. As spots become available, we will continue accepting students from the waitlist through the first day of the program. In the event a spot becomes available, you will be contacted via phone or email.
*Due to the high demand of the program, we are unable provide specific information regarding our waitlist (i.e. position number, etc.).
To participate, students must be enrolled in 3rd-5th grade at the time of application (student’s current grade level). Approximately 100 students are accepted per grade level, totaling 300 students.
Duration: Three (3) weeks per site
*Before/after care is NOT PROVIDED or COORDINATED by NSBE. Students MUST be dropped off no earlier than 8:30am and picked up no later than 3:30pm.
*Please be advised that due to the nature of the program, at this time SEEK is not equipped to accommodate students with special needs, individualized education programs or behavioral challenges who require specialized attention and/or instruction.

Due to the high demand of the SEEK program, we require that students participate in the entire three (3) week duration of the program. Students who are unable to meet this requirement will forfeit their spot in the program for the current program year, but will be eligible to reapply the following year.
We require all parents attend a mandatory parent orientation and registration session held on the Saturday before the program begins (date and location TBA upon acceptance). Parents who do not attend the registration will forfeit their spot to a student on the waiting list. If you are unable to attend the mandatory orientation, you must arrange for a representative to attend on behalf of your child. Parental involvement is an integral part of the sustenance and growth of the SEEK program.
Students will be instructed by NSBE collegiate students from across the country. The mentor to student ratio is 1:6. There are approximately 20-25 students per classroom with 5-6 mentors. Each site will have one Site Director and one Assistant Site Director.
