Youth Enrichment Classes

Our Enrichment Classes offer your child another opportunity after the school day to explore a wide range of activities and find their passion. Each weekday will focus on a different theme, and the theme will evolve over the course of the school year. Mondays will focus on Art, Tuesdays on Life Skills, Wednesdays will feature our Study Hall, and Thursdays will focus on Music and Audio/Visual subjects. Class sizes will be kept intentionally small to ensure students get the most out of each session.
