After School Classes
Cascades Academy aims to provide enriching after school experiences for students of all ages. Our after school classes follow a fall, winter, and spring schedule and are hosted by teachers from our school and members from our greater community. Our desire is to create after school classes that are enriching for students, have an intentional start to finish, and a tangible outcome. We believe that the programs that we offer to our school community will allow our students to learn new skills or enhance their skill sets and come together with their peers and leaders in a positive social and learning environment.
Most classes run from 3:30-4:30pm (unless otherwise noted). The cost of each program includes materials and snacks. If you require additional care from 4:30-5:30pm, please register your child for Extended Day in addition to the class of your choice.
If you are a non-Cascades Academy family, we ask that you please take a moment to fill out an emergency health information form along with your registration.
For any questions regarding after school classes or scholarship opportunities, please contact the Auxiliary Program Director Alicia Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
