After-School Enrichment

When school lets out for the day at DCS, the fun and learning definitely don’t stop! Our after-school enrichment program consists of a diverse offering of activities and courses led by teachers and respected community volunteers. There are several sessions throughout the year, each featuring a different assortment of programs to choose from.

The after-school enrichment program is a fantastic way to allow students to explore more niche interests and topics in greater depth. Check out our current offerings below.
