Explore and Extend After-School Program

At St. Francis, we believe that learning should not end with the last bell of the school day. That is why our Explore and Extend after-school enrichment program features a varying array of small group classes each semester. From art to martial arts, dance, and foreign language study to gymnastics, robotics, cooking, and chess, there is a class to pique the interest of every student.

After-School Care and Enrichment Classes for Students 2-Years-Old and Up
Explore and Extend (E&E) After-School Care begins at dismissal and runs until 6:00 p.m., providing students with structured daily activities and a healthy snack.  Students are encouraged to develop self-help, social, problem solving, creative, and critical thinking skills within a developmentally appropriate environment.

Time is provided for students in Lower and Middle School to independently pursue homework. While teachers are available to assist as needed, Explore and Extend is not a tutorial service and cannot provide one-on-one tutoring during this homework time.
