St. Andrew's After School Program

Beyond the Classroom
To assist parents after school, St. Andrew’s offers a comprehensive after-school program called Beyond the Classroom (BTC), which keeps Lower School (K-5) students active and engaged from dismissal until 5:30 pm on school days. 

Some students prefer to use their last few hours on campus to get schoolwork done and work with tutors so they can free up evening time at home. Some would rather get moving with intramural sports or free play. Some choose to take private music lessons to hone their instrument. BTC offers options for every student, making after-school time easy for our parent community and productive for our students.
