Our Learning & Discovery Afterschool Enrichment Program operates each afternoon that school is open for in-person instruction (normally Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday) with an optional “drop in” program available to enrolled students each Wednesday*.

Locations: Greenwood Elementary School and Shady Grove Elementary School

We operate our afterschool program from school dismissal until 6:00 pm with a weekly fee of $85 per student.

We operate our drop-in program each Wednesday from 7:30 am – 6:00 pm at Greenwood Elementary with a daily fee of $25 per student. This program is only available to students enrolled in either our Greenwood or Shady Grove afterschool programs and requires no pre-registration.

Our Learning & Discovery Program provides a wide variety of enrichment activities designed to support student achievement in a safe and fun environment. Sample activities include:

  • Robotics and S.T.E.M. Programs
  • Writing, Poetry, Journalism
  • Reading & Language
  • Music & Movement
  • Environmental Stewardship, Service Learning
  • Public Speaking, Drama
  • Athletics, Yoga
  • Homework Support
  • Chess
  • Art

Activities are tailored to the specific needs and interests of each school with input from school leadership, staff, and students.

Students are assigned to groups of approximately twelve, based on grade level. Due to reduced group size, space in this program is limited.

We follow all Virginia licensing requirements relating to COVID-19, including wearing of cloth face coverings by staff and students.
