The After School Program provides students in First, Lower and Middle Schools with an age-appropriate variety of indoor and outdoor activities including art, sports, music, storytelling, drama, and dance until 5:30 p.m. (with an option to extend to 6:00 p.m.) each day school is in session for a full day.
A nutritious nut-free snack is served “family style” each afternoon. Monitored homework time provides Lower and Middle School students with a quiet and structured setting in which to study. Students who do not have homework can use this time for reading or drawing; children are encouraged to bring books to read every day.
Students are divided by grade levels with First School students remaining in the First School building; depending on the season, Lower School students gather in either Katharine Hall or the Arts Building; and Middle School students meet in the Ford K. Brown Library in the Barn.
