Newman Afterschool Programs


After 3 'Enrich & Play'
For the Spring 2021 semester, programming will continue to be focused on enrichment and play. At this time, we are unable to operate any specialist classes due to current guidelines.  However, we aim to bolster activities where possible and support students with their homework.

Remote Private music lessons are offered to Kindergarten through 8th grade students. These afterschool lessons are conducted remotely with our After 3 instructors via Newman’s Zoom account. Our talented instructors aim to build fundamentals and support students on their journey with their chosen instruments. Lessons are available for piano, guitar, ukulele, and bass guitar.

The After 3 program for Pre-K through 5th grade students in the Lower School will follow a schedule that includes choice-based activities and play centers within their classroom setting. Snack will also be provided. When possible, the group will move in their same cohort to an appropriate outdoor or indoor space for recess or active play. There may be days where active play is not possible.  At this time, please note that contact sports will not be permitted. 

Experienced Staff
The staff includes Newman faculty members and Newman Plus staff. Counselor support is provided by carefully selected college students, graduate students, and professionals.

After 3 is available Monday through Friday throughout the school year, 3:00 - 5:30 p.m.
