The cost is a $10 registration fee (due with enrollment) and $16/day (for 6+ hours) with a minimum requirement of paying for 2 days a week.  There is not a summer food program at CMA, so students will need to eat breakfast before they come and bring a sack lunch.

Welcome to McAuliffe K-8 Academy
Christa McAuliffe was a public school teacher from New Hampshire who was selected to become the first teacher in space.  Her energy and love for students and teaching made her an outstanding educator.   The possibilities are endless as to how we can incorporate her character traits,  love of science, and helping students make real life connections with the skills they are learning in our classrooms.

Christa McAuliffe is located just north of Pawnee on 143rd Street East.
