After-School Athenaeum is a tuition-based program designed to reinforce the lessons learned in your child’s classroom, complementing our mission as a classical, liberal arts institution.
The Athenaeum (ath-uh-nay-uhm) was originally a school in Rome, founded by Emperor Hadrian in 133 A.D. for the promotion of literary and scientific studies.
Similarly, Great Hearts Athenaeum After-School Program 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. 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 and half-days) until 6:00 p.m. Flexible and affordable options are available to fit any family’s after-school needs.

Great Hearts Summer Camp is reminiscent of traditional camps from our childhood with the same quality you have come to expect from Great Hearts. Each week, scholars will experience hands-on, engaging activities in fine arts, reading, writing, crafts, science, math, and history – all designed to inspire creativity and keep skills sharp over the summer. Each Camp also offers weekly guest presenters, camp songs and games while fostering lasting friendships.
Kinder Academy is designed to acclimate incoming Kindergarten students to the Archway Schools, Great Hearts curriculum, and the academy teachers. Each week scholars will be taken on an adventure to practice the skills needed in Kindergarten.
