To make sure you’re ready for NAPCA, we’ve put together a list of required and recommended items to bring with you to the program.

Click Here to download the list of items to bring with you to NAPCA.

Students must arrange for their own transportation to and from NAPCA.

Students may attend NAPCA’s MPP Academy as residential or commuting students.

Each option provides unique advantages and opportunities to our participants. Students who live at a distance geographically, or who are eager to experience the full benefit of living on a university campus, should apply to be residential students.

Students who live a manageable distance from campus, or who can arrange to stay with local area family or family friends, may attend NAPCA as commuting students.

Regardless of whether a student lives on campus or stays at home, NAPCA offers a challenging summer of academic enrichment, career exploration and planning, social-emotional skills development, and opportunity for personal development.

Student safety and supervision are our first priority at NAPCA. Campus security officers and designated NAPCA staff frequently patrol all campus facilities used by the program. Students are supervised by NAPCA staff throughout their entire day as they move from activity to activity in our small group format.
For those students that live on campus, nightly room checks are conducted to ensure all students are safe and secure, and designated staff perform scheduled walkthroughs of the residence halls while students are resting in their dorm rooms from 11:00pm to 7:00am. During site visits, all students must stay with their assigned group and staff member as well as cooperate with site-specific security measures. Our staff of highly experienced educators are trained in safety and emergency procedures. Staff members are carefully screened and undergo background checks.



NAPCA students will live and learn within a safe and secure college environment. Students will live in the freshmen dorms and attend their NAPCA class on campus.



NAPCA students will eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner with their peers and NAPCA staff in the University dining hall. The campus dining hall can accommodate dietary restrictions and selective food eaters.



Mail Services exists to serve NAPCA students, faculty, and staff in all of their mailing and shipping needs, both incoming and outgoing. We send and accept mail from the United States Postal Service, FedEx, and UPS.


Campus Mailing Address: This information will be made available upon request.



NAPCA students who are 18 years old or older that reside off campus are allowed to drive and park their vehicle on campus while attending the NAPCA program. No exceptions. NAPCA students will be required to purchase a parking permit. For more information, please contact us.
