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.

Tuesday: Cross-country skiing

Many sports claim to be a full-body workout, but cross-country skiing has them all beat. You’ll use nearly every major muscle group in your upper and lower body—plus some muscles you didn’t even know existed. It’s about power, balance, stability, control, rhythm, and good breathing techniques. Learn the basics and get ready for some fun in the snow. We will end this program with a trip to Bonneville Golf Course for an afternoon of adventure and fun. (You will need to rent or purchase your own equipment for this program.)
