Co-Curricular Programs

Risk-Taking Encouraged

Students in Grades 1 – 5 have the opportunity to participate in a robust after-school co-curricular program, focused on nurturing and development of the whole child.  Arts, Academics, Athletics, Clubs and Service programming runs for 6–8 weeks and is offered after school, usually 3:30-4:30 p.m., once per week.

Participation in the co-curricular program is an integral part of student life throughout the year and students are expected to participate regularly. Meaningful participation helps our students improve their life balance, take risks, have fun, and grow socially and personally.
