After School Learning Program (ASLP)
The After School Learning Program (ASLP) is committed to creating a safe and engaging space for youth to grow their skills and interests, express creativity and be involved in their community. In addition to academic support, enrichment classes and physical education, our program incorporates intentional community building with a focus on equity and inclusion. We partner with day school administration and staff to provide a continuum of learning that makes After School the best place to be once the bell rings!

Clubs run on an 8-week rotation, giving students the opportunity to experience 3 different areas of interest and engagement throughout the year.
