Lower School (K-5)

The Lower School offers an extended-day program for students who need to remain on campus after school dismissal until 5:30 pm. 

Some students prefer to use their last few hours on campus to do homework and receive help from tutors. Others prefer to release energy through free play or intramural sports, or take some private music lessons. Some of our more recent additions to BTC include STEM-based classes like 3D Printing and Robotics.

BTC Basic Care
This option includes full afternoon supervision, snack, study hall, and free play.

BTC Enrichment Classes

This option includes full afternoon supervision before and after selected activity, snack and supervised free play.
