A student’s day does not end at 3:00 p.m. and neither does the educational experience at St. Peter’s. In an effort to support the diverse needs of parents and students, St. Peter’s offers a variety of afterschool programs that provide meaningful learning experiences in an environment that is safe and caring.
The cornerstone of St. Peter’s afterschool programs is Destination Discovery, an on-site science enrichment program that begins at 3 p.m. and continues until 6 p.m. Implemented to accommodate working parents and to ensure students have a meaningful and reliable afterschool experience, Destination Discovery represents a partnership between St. Peter’s and the Creative Discovery Museum (CDM). Managed by the educational professionals at CDM, Destination Discovery operates every afternoon throughout the school year and is available to all students, ages 3 years old through 5th Grade.
Other Afterschool Programs
Because students’ interests are broad and singular, the schedule of afterschool is a diverse list of activities. Depending on their age, students can participate in competitive and recreational team sports such as soccer, basketball, cross-country track, volleyball, baseball, lacrosse, and tennis. A variety of music and dance programs provide students instruction in guitar, violin, cello, piano, voice, ballet, tap, and hip-hop. Students can also register for art lessons, cooking classes, soccer coaching, tennis lessons, cheerleading, yoga, Tai Chi, theater, chorus, and gardening.Costs associated with afterschool programs are not included in tuition and vary from program to program.
