Extracurricular Programs

We offer supplemental programs in our gymnasium and on the lawn in the areas of gymnastics, creative movement, soccer, Spanish, martial arts, and golf.  We have chosen top-notch programs and teachers to be an extension of our program offerings at Athena. While Athena oversees all programs, the owners of each program run the programs independently. Athena runs background checks on every teacher and coach, provides emergency training, and ensures that every instructor is current in CPR and First Aid. Enrollment and payment for extracurricular programs is handled directly through each partner. You can turn in paperwork and checks to any of our two tuition drop-boxes on campus.
