Before & After School Programs
Early morning care is provided at no additional cost by a Lower School faculty member for students who arrive between 7:30 and 7:50am. Students are then escorted to their homeroom for the start of the academic day.
The Supplemental Program in the Afternoon for Recreation and Knowledge (SPARK) is an after-school program designed to meet the needs of Lower School families who want a safe, structured place for their children to spend time at the end of the school day.
Led by a capable team of GA faculty and staff, SPARK lets children participate in a variety of enriching, age-appropriate activities, including playground games, arts and crafts, sports, performing arts and other creative endeavors.
The SPARK schedule is designed to be flexible. Families can sign up for an occasional afternoon as needed, a few days a week, or every day. We are committed to being available for your child any time your family needs this service.
After School Activities Programs (ASAPs) are open to all Lower School students, and provide specialized instruction once a week in areas outside of regular SPARK programming. Music ASAPs require full-year commitments, while others are offered by term in Fall, Winter, and Spring. ASAPs are timed to run during the first SPARK session, so students can sign up for an ASAP and the second SPARK session on the same day.
