After School Programs

Athenaeum (Grades K-5th)

After-School Athenaeum is focused on the liberal arts and promotes learning by providing students dedicated homework time in addition to a diverse array of culturally-enriching, academically-oriented activities beyond the classroom. Our activities and lessons are aimed at improving students’ scholastic performance by reinforcing the lessons, virtues, and curriculum of the classroom.

But it’s not all academics! Athenaeum scholars also enjoy time for recreation, games, socializing, and just plain fun. Athenaeum runs daily from the dismissal bell (even on early-release Fridays) until 6:00pm. Flexible and affordable options are available to fit any family’s after-school needs.

In an effort to ease the transition of new Kindergarten students, the program will not be available to kindergarteners for the first two days of school. Visit greatheartsirving.org/kindergarten for details on “Kindergarten Academy.”
