After-School Enrichment

In keeping with our Mission to foster the development of the mind, body and spirit of our girls, St. Catherine’s offers an After-School Enrichment Program for St. Catherine's girls in kindergarten through grade 4. These after-school classes have been designed to give students the opportunity to explore activities of particular interest. Whether just for fun or to develop knowledge and skills, there are many great extracurricular programs available for our girls. All classes will be held at St. Catherine's and students in lower school will be escorted to their classrooms for the afternoon.
