3:20 Club for K-4 Students (After School Care)

The 3:20 Club welcomes students in K-4 for a structured afternoon of academic and extracurricular activities. Our goal is to provide activities that stimulate learning and enrich the school experience outside of the classroom. In order to achieve this goal, we feel group size is important; therefore, our activities average ten children per adult. Fall, Winter, and Spring sessions are available and require advanced registration and related fees.

Time: Monday – Friday, 3:20 – 6:00 pm

3:20 – 3:30 pm Arrival/Gathering

Study Hall for Grades 5-8 Students (After School Care)

The Middle School Study Hall is for students in grades 5-8 and is an important time for students to learn productive study habits and social skills. Homework is an essential part of Study Hall. Students are required to complete all homework and have it checked by an adult before they can begin another activity. If homework is not assigned, age appropriate academic related activities will be provided and students will be encouraged to participate in those activities during the academic time. To keep in line with school policy, we ask that students not bring their hand-held games.

Time: Monday – Friday, 3:20 – 6:00 pm

3:20 – 3:25 pm Arrival/Snack Time
3:30 – 3:40 pm Supervised Free Time (Indoor or Outdoor)

Payment options exist for single day, multi week, and drop in participation.

Study Hall for Grades 9-12 Students
The after-school study hall will provide Upper School students with the opportunity to study or work on homework in a quiet, supervised environment. An Upper School faculty member will serve as a proctor and will coach students to set daily work goals, use time effectively, and monitor progress, as well as overseeing appropriate use of technology.

After School Activities

There are many fun after school activities for students to join. These activities may be separate, or in addition to the 3:20 Club and Study Hall. After School Activities change every six weeks and have included art, sports, robotics, STEM, and gaming just to name a few. So come out and play!
