After School Programs
Athenaeum (Grades K-5th)
After-School Athenaeum is focused on the liberal arts and promotes learning by providing students dedicated homework time in addition to a diverse array of culturally enriching, academically oriented activities beyond the classroom. Our activities and lessons are aimed at improving students’ scholastic performance by reinforcing the lessons, virtues, and curriculum of the classroom.
But it’s not all academics! Athenaeum scholars also enjoy time for recreation, games, socializing, and just plain fun. Athenaeum runs daily from the dismissal bell (even on early release days) until 6:00 pm. Flexible and affordable options are available to fit any family’s after-school needs.
