Ashley Hall After School Enrichments

We are excited to offer one of the largest class selections for Ashley Hall After School this winter/spring. As in the past, we are most fortunate that most our enrichments are led by our very own Ashley Hall faculty! 

Due to the school calendar, we will be offering three sessions for winter/spring.

Session 1 (4 weeks): Week of January 14—Week of February 4
Session 2 (4 weeks): Week of February 25—Week of March 18
Session 3 (8 weeks): Week of April 1—Week of May 20

Please note: We are pleased to offer enrichments for our youngest students in pre-primary and primary grades. Pre-primary and primary enrichments are scheduled after nap time and will add to students’ fun afternoons.  

Before or after their enrichment classes, our Lower School students will attend our awesome After School Program, led by After School Enrichments Coordinator DeeDee Smith. For classes starting at 3:00 p.m., students will stay in “Big Sister” time from dismissal until their enrichment begins. We hope your children will be able to take part in these wonderful, creative, and unique programs offered only at Ashley Hall. 

Important Information about Registration:

Some enrichments have a maximum capacity of students. Once you have submitted your application, you will be notified via email regarding the status of your child’s enrollment. Every parent will be notified if an enrichment class has reached maximum capacity. We will then encourage parents to find another enrichment that works for their child. You will only be charged for an enrichment class when you receive an enrollment email from Ashley Hall.

The list below details enrichments for Session 1 (Week of January 14—Week of February 4). Some classes will continue for Session 2; information on enrichments for Session 2 will be available by January 23.
