Afterschool Overview

While some Schechter students end their school day just after 3 p.m., many participate in a home away from home at Schechter’s afterschool program. Parents choose from an extended day program that offers a wide variety of activities, including art, cooking and gym; more structured hands-on enrichment classes in visual and dramatic arts, sciences, crafts, games and more; private music lessons in most instruments; and intramural athletics (kindergarten through fifth grade). Students participate in activities and classes, all designed to open new doors of exploration and discovery. Children experience hands-on learning and can become scientists, artists, athletes, writers, actors or musicians.
