Cultivating happy, engaged, inquisitive learners
St. Stephen's offers two types of after school programs for its students: Extended Aftercare Services and Enrichment Programs. The After School Program is committed to ensuring the social, recreational, and academic growth of its students by providing a safe, positive, and nurturing environment where students can thrive in every activity. The safety and well-being of the students are of foremost concern. There is an off-duty police officer on campus until the last student leaves. The After School Program begins immediately after school and runs until 6:00 PM on every full day of school.
The Enrichment Programs offers three different sessions during Fall, Winter, and Spring. Enrichment classes vary each session but include activities such as team sports, art, science, dance, chess, foreign language, archery and more. The After School Enrichment classes offer the students the opportunity to explore and develop a variety of new interests.
The St. Stephen’s Episcopal Day School After School Athletic Program provides enrichment in various sports such as soccer, flag football, and basketball. The athletic program will emphasize sportsmanship, teamwork, self-discipline and positive competition. Through these athletic programs, students are given every opportunity to explore the sport in an environment that nurtures the development of each participant regardless of athletic abilities. Coaches will emphasize the importance of winning with humility and losing with dignity. Most importantly, we accomplish these goals while having fun. The After School Athletic program hopes to instill knowledge of the sport and develop the love of the game.
