After School Programming
Wolfe Street Academy’s After School Program is funded, in part, by the Family League of Baltimore City and The Weinberg Foundation with The Baltimore Curriculum Project providing management of the grants. This year we have a robust program that consists of academics, enrichment classes, and a variety of elective clubs.
The goal of the After School Program is to provide an inclusive, extended learning environment that supports the day school and adds to the day school curriculum experience.
We currently enroll 65% of our day school students. We operate Monday—Thursday on all FULL school days, 3 hours a day. The program is free to all Wolfe Street Academy students, Kindergarten through 5th grade. Each student receives snack and supper daily.
