Originally a school in Rome, founded by Emperor Hadrian in 133 A.D. for the promotion of literary and scientific studies. The purpose of the Great Hearts After-School Athenaeum is also to promote learning by offering our students a diverse array of culturally enriching, academically oriented activities.

What We Offer:
It’s not just “after-care.” It’s After-School Athenaeum.
While our programs are available after school until 6:00 pm, we are not simply an “after-care” program. In addition to daily supervised homework time, free-play with friends, and time for snack (snack not provided), our program features unique, high-quality, culturally enriching activities that complement our mission as a classical, liberal arts institution. Activities might include dance, soccer, painting, yoga, creative writing, martial arts, speech and drama, science activities, ceramics, illustration, architecture, gardening, music, and that is just the beginning! Our goal is to provide an exciting, engaging, and enriching program for all scholars.
We also offer a variety of special guest visitors periodically throughout the year. We work with teachers, parents, and vendors within the community who have specialized experience in a variety of areas and invite them to share their expertise with our scholars. All special activities are included in the regular tuition and are at no additional cost to you. Any special activities will be detailed on the monthly activity calendar.
