The mission of the After-School STEM xplorers Program is to provide quality educational programs for all students through engaging experiences.

Designed to augment STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) with the inclusion of the arts (STEAM), this program employs hands-on activities as a means to strengthen students’ mathematics and science competencies, create an awareness of the world of technology, engineering with art and enhance the development of students’ pro social behaviors and attitudes towards school. Through the sports programs we endeavor to promote healthy lifestyles through physical fitness and better nutrition.

To fulfill this commitment, we ask that all students enrolled in the enrichment programs adhere to basic behavioral and safety guidelines. Students are encouraged to become involved in the extra-curricular program, and once they join an activity, continued attendance is expected. Our scientists/instructors set clear boundaries and expectations with both the school administration and students.

In addition, STEM xplorers will follow all school rules and policies regarding student behavioral expectations. We stress at the beginning of each class that the school rules are still in effect during all after-school clubs. We ask for the full cooperation of parents and school administration should they be notified of discipline problems.

It is our intention to provide each student with an exciting and fun after-school experience!

The extra-curricular activities change termly and a schedule will be published closer to Term start dates.

“Schedules and Fees will be shared closer to the school start dates. “
