Extra Curricular Activities

Across the Dwight global network of schools, we offer over 150 activities and curricular support sessions. Dwight’s after-school activities are an important extension of the day and reflect our dedication to igniting the spark of genius in every child. Students will develop their interests and talents and discover new ones, through extra-curricular programs that reinforce what they learn in the classroom, encourage skill development, and build self-esteem. Along the way, students share enriching experiences, forge friendships, and challenge themselves to grow.

The range of our after-school offerings is planned to be extensive, with age-appropriate choices to spark minds, bodies, and imaginations. Programs will be led by our faculty or leading outside professionals. Students will have fun, learn, and cultivate their unique spark of genius.

We foster vertical grouping where appropriate, to allow students to engage across age groups and abilities. We do this to create a sense of community, respect for diversity and challenge.
