Progression

NSP Progression:

Students will be expected to enroll in courses that enable them to safely and enjoyably learn to sail independently within the framework of the NSP course offerings. There is no "standard" or "right" way to progress. This coming season the staff of NSP will work with students and parents to explicitly communicate the progress of students and to give clear assessment of students strengths and weaknesses to assist in making constructive class choices.
