  • After-School Classes: Fall SessionSeptember 19 to December 2, 2016

    Dear Eton Families,

    Our after-school classes strive to engage students in activities that support their physical, social, emotional and mental development. A variety of age-appropriate classes are offered to provide after school learning opportunities, introduce new skills, and develop talents. These classes are provided on-site and they are taught by professional groups or individuals who have a passion for sharing their talents with our students.

    This year, we are offering three 10 week sessions (Fall, Winter, and Spring). Each session offers a wide variety of classes for each grade level. Please note, Friday classes during the fall are only eight weeks and one class is 20 weeks.
