Bi-lingual After-School Program
We offer an enriching and exciting bilingual After-School program. There are 2 sessions per year. We open our after-school program to learners in home-school programs as a way of engaging with project-based learning in either Spanish or French. English programs are also offered. We require a minimum of 6 students per course in order to offer a class. Older siblings and friends from all schools are welcome to join in the fun. After School is designed for grades K - 5th. Collaboration between different age learners is encouraged.
