Originally a school in Rome, founded by Emperor Hadrian in 133 A.D. for the promotion of literary and scientific studies. The purpose of the Great Hearts After-School Athenaeum is also to promote learning by offering our students a diverse array of culturally enriching, academically oriented activities.
It’s not “after-care.” It’s After-School Athenaeum.
While our program runs as late as 6:00PM, we are not an “after-care” program. Athenaeum focuses on the liberal arts and provides students with academic enrichment opportunities beyond the classroom. Our activities and lessons reinforce and extend the lessons learned in your child’s classroom, complementing our mission as a classical, liberal arts institution.
About After-School Athenaeum
WHEN the program runs: The program runs Mondays- Fridays from directly after school until 6:00pm (including half days) for the duration of the school year, excluding vacations / holidays when school is not in session. Pickup is as early as you wish, but no later than 6:00pm. Note: In an effort to ease the transition of new kindergarten students, the program will not be available to kindergarteners for the first three days of school. Please click to visit the Kindergarten page on the academy website for more information for kindergarten students.
WHAT the program consists of: In addition to a daily supervised study hour, our program features unique, high-quality, culturally enriching activities that complement our mission as a classical, liberal arts institution. (And they’ll be fun. Did we mention fun?!)
WHO can come to Athenaeum: The program is open to students in grades K-5. The Great Hearts Homework Club is available as an after-school option for 6th-12th grade students.
SPECIAL ACTIVITIES: We want to expose our students to as many culturally enriching and physically diverse activities as we can. Therefore, we occasionally offer special activities at no additional cost. These include activities such as ballroom dance, soccer, painting, cooking, creative writing, martial arts, photography, speech & drama, science activities, athletics, sculpture, Pilates, drawing, architecture, gardening, and music.
Please Note: Great Hearts Homework Club is available as an after-school option for students in grades 6-12.
