Enrichment Programming

Salisbury Academy's Enrichment Programming provides choice-based offerings for students as they explore topics and areas of interest that complement their school-day educational experiences. The diverse program offerings support families seeking after-school enhancements for their students while delivering engaging opportunities for students to develop existing interests or experiment with new. Through Enrichment Programming at Salisbury Academy, students are invited to delve deeper into their curiosities about the arts, technology, wellness, and more! 

Activities are optional and offered to lower school (grades 1-4) and middle school (grades 5-8) by the semester. Classes are led by skilled instructors. 

Space for each class is limited. Program cost of $150 can be paid by cash, check, or through your FACTS account. Payment is due at the beginning of the semester or can be broken into monthly payments over the course of the semester. Students who attend ASK (after school care) after Enrichment Programming will have a reduced ASK fee of $5 for the hours of 4:30 to 6 p.m.

Fall 2018 registration deadline: Friday, August 24
