After School Programs
Dynamic educational opportunities abound after Dismissal. Students grow their skills, expand their social circles, and encounter new challenges by participating in our robust after school offerings, which span every age and interest.
PlayGroup is a play-based, drop-in program offered every day from Dismissal until 6:00 p.m. PlayGroup is also offered when school is closed for Parent/Teacher Conferences. Families are billed by the half hour.
AfterSchool Classes (K-5th Grade)
The AfterSchool program offers courses for Lower School students across a variety of subjects, including chess, robotics, martial arts, dance, Woodshop and more.
