Each semester The École offers a different set of after-school activities, selected based on student and parent interest. Activities fall into one of the following categories: Academic & Character, Art & Music, Sports & Fitness, and Science & Technology. Led either by one of our own teaching staff, or by a specialist partner organization—such as Swan, Soccer Shots, TekIntellect, Tennis Innovators and others—each is designed to align with the particular developmental levels of our Maternelle, Elementary, and Middle School students, building off the work they are doing in their everyday classrooms.

At The École, we’re particularly proud of some unique options we’ve introduced for students in the 5th grade and above—such as The École Radio—that allow students to explore particular areas of creative and scientific interest. They also encourage our older students to take on confidence-building leadership roles, educating and informing the younger grades about events that make our school special and the caring community values we share.

And of course, we can’t forget The École Falcons, our Elementary and Middle School sports team! The Falcons not only provide our students with the opportunity to build their athletic skills and sportsmanship, they also give our entire community—staff, students, and families— a great reason to come out together and cheer.

Programs

Schedules and Fees

Academics & Character

Our Academic and Character activities give our students additional time, assistance, and experience to understand and master critical classroom skills and explore additional languages in a more relaxed learning environment. These activities support our older students as they both take on increasingly challenging school subjects and standardized tests and become role models for The École’s younger grades.

  • Mor-E, More-E Book Club
  • Raconte moi une histoire, Français+
  • Chess, Typing Club, The École Radio

Art & Music

Building from our regular school day Art & Music program, these creative activities let our younger students more deeply explore their imagination and talents as individual artists and group performers. They also allow older students to take more charge of their creativity as they grow older, providing opportunities for them to practice individual musical talents or come together in groups, whether to produce their own musical or write and perform their theatre pieces.

For our older students, Sports & Fitness activities focus both on individual skill-building and group team-building, including opportunities to play on The École Falcons team against other NYC schools. This helps them become more confident athletes when facing more competitive situations.
