Afternoons are the enrichment part of the day - the dessert after a full meal of learning all morning. The FUN!

This parent-led program is for families who want to squeeze in as many extra curricular activities into ONE DAY as possible. Sort of a "one-stop-shopping" experience. Parents who have strong interests or hobbies can start a Club for ROCK friends to join, like Chess Club, Rock Collectors Club, or Horse Club.

For the 2020-2021 year, Afternoon Classes and Clubs include Hands-on-History, a favorite class for kids that helps bring life to what is learned in the mornings, whether mummifying a Barbie, creating a Greek tile mosaic, or building a Roman aquaduct - the messier, the funner! Memory & Math Games, Health & Fitness, and Typing are also options. For high schoolers, we also offer Ultimate Survival: How to Survive After Graduation and also Greek & Roman Mythology.

Afternoons are usually a little more relaxed and kids get to be with their friends for a little while longer on Mondays.

Afternoon Clubs and Classes have a separate, reasonable fee of $150 per semester.

Afternoon Classes have been cancelled for FALL due to COVID-19.
