More ways for students to engage!

Our students love learning but don’t love leaving TCS. We’ve developed a variety of engaging after-school Enrichment Classes and extracurricular programs for students from Preschool to Eighth grade. These experiential learning classes play an important, and fun, role in encouraging children to become active members of a community and lifelong learners. We offer three sessions of enrichment classes each school year, during the fall, winter and spring. A new class schedule is distributed each session.

  • Classes are offered for Preschool through Eighth grade

  • Classes are developed and grouped by age and/or grade

  • Classes change each session

  • Options may include music, art, technology, sports, science, cooking, dance and more
