After School Program
“Our After School Program is designed to enhance the quality of time spent on campus after school ends. Children can play, learn and create through diverse extra-curricular activities such as science, sports, arts, music and Study Hall. With the children’s well-being always in mind, we provide a stimulating and safe environment all year long.”
-Andrew Cohen, After School Program Director

The After School Program also offers a number of Extracurricular Classes for children enrolled in the program. Classes include individual music lessons, sports, foreign language lessons, dance, and technology. There is an extra cost associated with our extracurricular classes (prices vary).
Extracurricular Classes are offered for Lower and Middle School students. The classes are generally one hour long and run for nine weeks in the Fall, Winter, and Spring.
Learning Lab is offered 3 days per week and provides a space for students in grades 3-5 to work at their own level and explore interests or passion projects. In the Learning Lab, time is divided into three segments: independent reading in both French and English; self-paced math practice on IXL; and personalized practice or genius time. Modeled after Genius Hour at Google, genius time allows students to generate an idea, create something to be shared, and reflect on their process and product.
The Learning Lab is staffed by members of the Academic Tech and Library teams, Lower School Administration, and the Teaching and Learning staff. Students are provided with small group or individual support as needed.
Dates and Times:
Monday - Wednesday, 4:00-5:00pm (Students will play on the yard and have a snack before going to Learning Lab at 4:00.)
Study Hall is offered on Thursdays for Grade 5 only.
There are no additional costs associated with Learning Lab if your child is enrolled in the After School Program.
