Afternoon Academy

Fall 2018 Class Schedule is HERE!

The Summit Afternoon Academy offers after-school activities for JrK/Pre-K to 5th Grade students. These high-quality, on-site enrichment classes focus on meaningful experiences in a wide variety of topics. Afternoon Academy (also known as, AF AC) classes generally meet once a week for one hour immediately following dismissal. Sessions run for approximately ten weeks in two separate sessions. Fall classes are announced on our website in mid-August and run from September through December. Spring classes are announced in late December and run from February through May. AF AC classes are led by qualified, experienced instructors; many are current Summit faculty. Students from any school are welcome to participate. Fees are competitive with other community programs. Students enrolled in the Summit Afterschool Program receive a discounted fee when registering for the Afternoon Academy.
