If you are one of the many families whose children participated in this current session of AHAS, we want to THANK YOU for the overwhelming support. If Ashley Hall’s Enrichment program is new to your family, we thank you for taking the time to investigate. Once again, we are excited to offer a wide variety of classes, most of which are led by our very own Ashley Hall faculty! 

For this second four-week session of 2019, most classes will run from the week of February 18th through the week of March 11th. This session, we are once again offering enrichments for our youngest students in pre-primary and primary. Those enrichments are scheduled right after dismissal and will add to their fun afternoons. Lower School students are the heart of our AHAS Enrichment program. Our Lower School students are escorted to all enrichment classes; parents may pick up their daughters from their enrichments. As always, Extended Day is available after classes until 6:00 p.m. each day.

We hope your students will be able to take part in these wonderful, creative, and unique programs. If you have questions, please call Dee Dee Smith at (843) 965-8452 or email her at smithd@ashleyhall.org.
