Extracurricular Programs

We have chosen top-notch programs and teachers to be an extension of our program offerings at Athena. We currently offer supplemental programs in our gym and on the lawn in the areas of gymnastics, creative movement, yoga, soccer, Spanish, martial arts, and golf.  Registration for Extracurriculars generally begins in early August for the regular school year, and we encourage families with newly enrolled children to consult with their child’s Lead guide to determine the best time to enroll their child in any Extracurricular programs.

Athena runs background checks on every teacher and coach, provides emergency training, and ensures that every instructor is current in CPR and First Aid.  Please note, however, that while Athena oversees all programs, the owner of each program runs their respective program independently.  Registration and payment for Extracurricular programs are handled directly through each partner. You are welcome to turn in paperwork and checks to any of our tuition drop-boxes on campus, and we will ensure that they are delivered to their respective partner.
