After-School Activities

Service-learning and activities like after-school clubs are great ways for students to develop leadership and interpersonal skills. Through participation, students can be self-directed, explore areas of interest, and experience success in different ways than they do in the classroom.

See something your child might be interested in? We choose activities based on our students’ strengths and interests, so let us know!
