After morning classes, we switch gears a bit. In the afternoon, we offer academic classes to sharpen skills or explore a new subject, performing and visual arts classes to find inspiration and flex your creative muscle, and athletic activities to maintain fitness and increase your energy level.
Through the application process, both Upper School and Middle School students will choose two afternoon classes or activities from a variety of academic, artistic, or athletic options described at the links below.
For example, one student may choose recreational soccer and jewelry making; another student may choose SAT prep and photography—the choices and combinations are endless!
