Program Description

St. Benedict Catholic School Enrichment Program seeks to enhance and expand educational opportunities for students beyond regular school hours in a safe, faith-filled environment.  Enrichment will include outdoor play, guided homework and reading time, and a variety of extracurricular activities.  Staff will foster an atmosphere that teaches students Christian values and character building.  With a balance of creative free play and meaningful structured activities, the program will engage students minds and imaginations during the afternoon hours, while allowing for the leisure students need after the school day.  Students will be offered a nutritious snack daily.

The Enrichment Program is operated each regular school day from 3:30-6:00.  It will also be offered on some professional development days.
