NIA is not available if the school is closed, if a school is having half day or if there is an emergency.

There are three semesters in NIA so that students have a chance to switch classes and try new things!

There is no yellow bus service available after NIA is over.

During the long breaks like winter break, NIA may host trips to many different places such as a museum or amusement park.
