BTC Details

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.

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. All students enrolled in enrichment classes are also enrolled in BTC basic care for that day (BTC fee applied).

Private Music Instruction in Piano, Guitar, or Violin
Weekly lessons are taught M-F by a variety of instructors in 30-40 minute blocks.  When registering, you may request your preferred lesson day. You will be contacted to confirm lesson availability.
Cost: $50 per lesson

BTC Daily Schedule
Except on poor weather days, BTC is based outside in the amphitheater and playscape area.

2:45-3:30 Snack and check-in
3:30-3:45 Free play outside at the amphitheater and playscape

Registration, Dates & Fees
BTC programs are offered in three trimesters. Registration for the majority of the BTC Enrichment classes occurs three times during the year. The 2019-2020 BTC Trimester Dates for enrichment classes are as follows: 
  • Fall Trimester: August 26-November 8 (After-school supervision is available from the 1st day of school 8/21)
  • Winter Trimester: November 11-February 28
  • Spring Trimester: March 2-May 22
Pre-registration for each trimester of BTC is required to ensure adequate resources are available to students on the first day. Fees for BTC vary based on how many sessions per week your student is enrolled.

Students may attend BTC on days for which they are not regularly registered; please notify by e-mail both the student's homeroom teacher and BTC. A drop-in fee of $25 per day will be charged.
