After School

Click here for the detailed 2016-2017 After School Schedule and a complete list of programming options!

From 3:00 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. each day, After School provides a safe and nurturing environment for 1st-8th grade students to learn and play in a less structured program than that of the school day. Every day of the week students are dismissed from their classrooms into the Commons. Our activity facilitators provide leadership and instruction to foster creativity and provide avenues for self-expression through planned activities.

After School is also an excellent opportunity to work on class assignments. Our Homework Help serves primary and middle school students, giving them a quiet room and subject matter support guided by experienced facilitators.
