Description:

The Enrichment program has multiple sessions in various formats. Winter sessions are Saturday classes that are held from 10a- 12 noon for 5 weeks . Students get an opportunity to take two one hour classes each Saturday.

Throughout the rest of the year, we offer classes over 5 week segments at various locations sponsored by local experts in the community that specialize in the modality we are offering. Some examples of classes we offer in the winter session and at various sites throughout the rest of the year are yoga, gymnastics, lacrosse, tae kwon do, ninja lab and cooking. The offerings vary with each session. The fee for this program is $20 per five week one hour class in the winter session (or $40 if you take both hours of the winter session). Off-site 5 week programs throughout the rest of the year are $50 for the entire five week session.

Registration Info:

Registration for fall site based sessions starts in the beginning of September and classes begin in early October.  Registration for Winter Enrichment typically starts in January and classes begin in late February. The rest of the site based sessions occur at various times from November to April. Registrations typically occur a month prior to the start of the program.
