Enrichment Opportunities

Enrichment opportunities are especially important to student growth and development. Whether you participate in sports, clubs, after-school programs, peer mentoring, summer camps, or other extra-curricular activities, you will be more prepared and equipped for higher education, and employment. Through these initiatives students are able to enhance their academic and social skills, generating a resume for the future.

Enrichment programs may focus on music and fine arts, learning, athletics, building a variety of skills, and so on. During the year, the Guidance Department receives information from community-based organizations, non-profit operations, religious organizations and universities offering such programs for young adolescents.

We plan on using this website to convey these opportunities to parents and students in our school district, and challenge you to take advantage of these great resources to discover something meaningful and rewarding.

The Natick High School Guidance and Counseling Department does not endorse one program over another but offers this list for information purposes only.

If you would like to advertise your opportunity with us, please contact Donna Slattery @ dslattery@natickps.org.

National Grid's Engineering Pipeline Program offers high school students the chance to learn more about National Grid and the engineering profession through a structured six-year program. It is a chance to translate the students interest in science, technology, engineering or mathematics into a future career of your choice.
As a Scholar in the Engineering Pipeline Program, you will be given the opportunity to gain exposure to the engineering industry through instruction, in and out of the classroom, site visits, research and projects. Highlights include interacting with real life engineers as mentors, networking with fellow program participants, participating in job shadowing to experience a “day in the life of,” and opportunities for paid internships. The end result could be a career with National Grid once graduated from college.
