Before-School Solis Ortus
Before-School Solis Ortus is a tuition-based extension of the school day for families who need to take advantage of an earlier start to the school day. Solis Ortus allows our families to drop off our children starting as early as 7:00 am. Our children spend the morning with some of our friendly teachers engaged in activities and games! Use the registration link below to read more about this opportunity and to register for Solis Ortus.
After-School Athenaeum is focused on the liberal arts and promotes learning by providing students dedicated homework time in addition to a diverse array of culturally enriching, academically oriented activities beyond the classroom. Our activities and lessons are aimed at improving students’ scholastic performance by reinforcing the lessons, virtues and curriculum of the classroom.
But it’s not all academics! Athenaeum scholars also enjoy time for recreation, games, socializing and just plain fun. Athenaeum runs daily from the dismissal bell (even on early release days) until 6:00 p.m. Flexible and affordable options are available to fit any family’s after-school needs.
*The Athenaeum (ath-uh-nay-uhm) was originally a school in Rome, founded by Emperor Hadrian in 133 A.D. for the promotion of literary and scientific studies.
