Extended Day and GUS+ Enrichment Programs

Academic excellence must go well beyond academics.

Extended day options are available to all Glen Urquhart School students. Before School Care begins at 7:30 a.m., meets in Braemar and is free of charge. After School Care is offered for grades K-5 from 3:00 - 5:30 p.m. Here students have the opportunity to develop friendships within their own age groups and with children from different class levels as well. Their time at after school is unstructured, with the freedom to relax with their friends while under the supervision of a professional teacher. Children may choose to play on the playground, the basketball and four square courts, play pick up football or soccer, or engage in imaginative play on the playground structures. Indoors they play board games, draw, cook, do crafts, read, or do their homework.

Students at GUS and community members may also enroll in special after school enrichment classes called GUS+, that are offered throughout the school year. The topics rotate based on interest but include or have included: ballet, movie making, chess, art classes, sports, yoga, fencing, dance, and SSAT preparation. Please see the information below.

Vacation break programs are offered in December, prior to the GUS Winter Vacation, to community members who have February and April vacations, and to GUS students during the first week of the Spring Vacation.
