Enrichment Programs are available for Pre-Kindergarten through 12th graders and allow students to explore, design, and create in their own unique areas of interest. These sessions meet once a week and are designed specifically to enrich students in their areas of choice, build upon their existing talents, and allow them to think and create in new and exciting ways!
Pricing is $20/hour, and students register for 8 or 9-week sessions at a time totalling $160 or $180 depending on the day of the week. At the conclusion of each 8/9 weeks, students may choose to continue, switch programs, or end. Most programs are not scheduled for a specific day and time but fill based on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that some programs are semester-long programs as indicated in their descriptions. A semester is 18 weeks.
Programs follow the local school system holiday schedule but DO NOT follow the school system snow day closing schedule. In the event programs are cancelled due to weather, a decision will be made by 1:00, and attendees should check the Facebook page for this information.
