Lower School Aftercare and Enrichment

St. Paul’s offers care and enrichment programs as an enhancement to our robust curriculum. These adventures allow our young learners to try new challenges and explore new interests. 

After-School Adventures

In our After-School Adventures (ASA) program, your child will have an opportunity to try new things in a safe and enriching environment. 

After-School Adventures is a structured program designed to foster active exploration through standard daily programs as well as specialized workshops. To support working families, the program is available from dismissal until 6 p.m. To ensure we can provide a safe environment for all students and staff, parents must pre-register their students for ASA. 

Please find more detailed information below, as well as the link to sign up using our CampBrain registration platform. If you have questions, please email Stacie Gottlieb, director of auxiliary services, at sgottlieb@stpaulsmd.org or 410-821-3058. 

Registration will open in August 2024. Please check back this summer for registration and workshop information in August.

Drop-In Care Options

Although we are asking all families to pre-register, we understand emergencies happen. In the event you need a drop-in session after school, we ask that you make this request 24 hours in advance. We will bill your account the daily drop-in fee. Drop-in students can choose from any standard program offered that day but will not be able to attend workshops.

Workshops

We are excited to offer specialized workshops for students to explore different interests. On our registration site, you will find information on a variety of offerings. 

Registration will open in August 2024. Please check back this summer for registration and workshop information in August.

Music Lessons

Lower school students have the option to sign up for instrumental music lessons after school. In the past, we have offered piano, violin, guitar, and voice lessons. In the fall, we plan to continue offering piano, violin, guitar, drums, bass, and voice lessons. We are still confirming lesson times and instructor availability for the fall. 

If you have a particular interest in after school music lessons, please email Alys Keretses at akeretses@stpaulsmd.org and we will reach out once lesson times have been finalized. Then you can register for the music lessons of your choice and the after-school care you will need. 

If your student is enrolled in a music lesson, a staff member will walk your lower school student to the Ward Center for the Arts for their lesson. Parents will pick up directly from the Ward Center following their lesson time.
