K-Grade 4 After-School Enrichment

Lower School Clubhouse
We know that girls love choices, and by giving girls choices, they dive deeper into exploration that fuels future passions. Through St. Catherine's Lower School Clubhouse, K-grade 4 girls can continue to explore, learn and grow after the school bell. Families may select Tuesdays and/or Thursdays up to 6 p.m., with sessions taking place throughout the school year on days when school is in session. Parents with daughters in kindergarten through grade 4 may choose Clubhouse participation with or without Extended Day enrollment.
Year-round enrichment for the 2021-2022 school year is $940 for one day a week or $1,600 for two days a week.
