Offered at most K-5 campuses, After-School Athenaeum is a tuition-based extension of the school day, featuring dedicated homework time and high-quality enrichment opportunities. 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 half-days) until 6:00p.m. in Arizona and 6:30p.m. in Texas. Flexible and affordable options are available to fit any family’s after-school needs. For Arizona billing information please contact Programs@GreatHeartsAZ.org or 602.396.7574. For Texas billing information, please contact Programs@GreatHeartsTX.org .
Our K-5 academies offer after-school athletic activities which are tuition-based. Young athletes learn more than just skills in our program: the talented and caring coaches also teach sportsmanship, respect, teamwork and leadership. Our student athletes will drill, practice and scrimmage, all the while learning the skills they need to successfully transition into our middle and high school athletics programs. Best of all—they will have fun with their fellow athletes!
At Great Hearts, our teachers don’t just teach in the classroom, they contribute to a vibrant after-school life by leading co-curricular activities. Each academy offers teacher-led programs, which vary from campus to campus. Fencing, knitting, sculpting, running, drama, board games, jewelry-making, yoga, choir, the science of flying contraptions – if your child has an interest, we probably have a program that covers it. Many K-5 schools also offer “special guest” activities, inviting outside vendors to campus for programs including chess, Lego, and STEM-focused courses.
Looking for something to do over the summer? Great Hearts Summer Camp features camps and classes in art, athletics and academics, Summer Camp provides the opportunity for our scholars to enjoy fun and purposeful recreation – all while keeping their academic skills sharp over the vacation.
