Our Afternoon Enrichment Classes offer in-depth lessons in a variety of subjects and were created to offer our older students the opportunity for a more focussed instructional period.
Class participation is determined by the student's lead teacher and the class instructor. Students must be at least four years old, be able to focus for extended periods of time, and be able to remain cheerful for the duration of the class and any remaining time spent at school.
