Afterschool Enrichment

We offer a wide range of Academic Enrichment classes for kids of all ages, which helps make the most of those after-school hours. Our quality instructors and a specialized curriculum give kids opportunities to extend their horizons, discover new skills and truly enjoy learning.

Below are just a few examples of our Academic Enrichment classes:

Computer lessons – Your child will learn practical computer programs, such as Microsoft Word and Excel in a fun environment. The class also includes time to practice, in order to develop confidence on the computer.

Creative writing – This enrichment class is perfect to encourage your child’s imagination, creativity and writing skills. There are a variety of exercises, including teacher-modeled writing, shared writing, and independent writing. Topics include journaling, poetry, journalism, story writing, character development, and more.

Science - Our hands-on science program is one of our most popular enrichment programs. Your child will engage in exciting hands-on activities, watch fun demonstrations, participate in inquiry-based discussions, and discover the world around them through activities such as robotics, urban gardening, and coding.

Cartooning - Do your kids love to draw?  Would they enjoy learning drawing techniques? In this fun class, they’ll learn how to replicate some of their favorite cartoons, while developing their own animated characters.

After-school learning = After-school fun.

Y-Academy will turn your child’s academic challenges into a learning experience. This program is for families who want unique opportunities for their children, those who would like their child to experience a break from the usual after school routine and those who don’t have the time, energy or wherewithal to drive their children all over town to several different locations for enrichment.
