Athenaeum is a tuition-based extension of the school day, featuring dedicated homework time and high-quality enrichment opportunities. 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 half-days) until 6:00pm.

Summer Camp

Our Great Hearts team is excited to announce our new and improved summer program – Summer Camp! We have created a full-day experience for children K-6 that is reminiscent of traditional camps from our childhood with the same quality you have come to expect from Great Hearts’ classical curriculum. Each week, scholars will experience hands-on, engaging activities in fine arts, reading, writing, crafts, science, math and history – all designed to inspire creativity and keep skills sharp over the summer. Each Camp also offers weekly guest presenters, camp songs and games while fostering lasting friendships. Camps start June 4th.
