After 3 is an opportunity for Lower School students to engage in unique learning and growing experiences in a fun atmosphere after school.  The program offers enrichment activities, specialist classes, and private music lessons.  

Registration is online and limited to a first-come, first-served basis. Enrollment in the program includes the ability to stay in After 3 from the regular school day dismissal until 5:30 p.m. Childcare will not be available beyond 5:30 p.m. 

Students participating in the program will follow a schedule that includes choice-based activities/specialist classes, recess, and snack.

Private music lessons are offered in-person to kindergarten through 5th grade students. Our talented instructors aim to build fundamentals and support students on their journey with their chosen instruments. Lessons are available for piano and guitar. Students registered for private music lessons will also participate in enrichment activities outside of their lesson time.

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.
