After School Programs


After school programs are great ways to keep your kids active and learning! Many of our programs are led by REALMS staff and others are led by experts in their field. All after school programs must have a minumum enrollment of 8 students in order to run, Some programs have maximum enrolmments and fill up quickly, so enroll early!


In addition to the tuition based programs below, we offer a HOMEWORK CLUB on a "daily drop in" basis. HOMEWORK CLUB is open to all students and no enrollment is necessary. Homework club is staffed with a tutor who is there to help students with homework, maintain a quiet, productive environment, and provide kids with a snack. Typically there are 5-10 students at HOMEWORK CLUB each day We do ask families to pay a $3/day contribution.


Important Facts:
