Lower School Clubs

Create And Explore

Enhance your child’s academic and creative experience by registering for an After School Club. Clubs meet once a week for one hour, unless otherwise noted in the descriptions below, and are open to all students beginning in mid September. Children enrolled in a club may remain at school in the extended day program between dismissal and 3:15 pm.

Those who receive an aid grant from the School may be eligible for financial aid for this program due to a generous donor fund. Please contact Cassie Abodeely if you are interested in receiving aid for a club. 

After School Clubs fill fast so register soon!

    solving a problem, and taking it as far as it will go before the class ends. You’ll create a business plan, enlist friends and family, and set up everything you need to be a junior entrepreneur: you’ll build a
    prototype, create a marketing strategy, a price point, and deliver a presentation. Ultimately, you’ll share your idea with friends and family, work hard to get a first customer, and present all your progress to the
