After-School Life

School life does not end at dismissal.

A. Fantis encourages all students to participate in a thriving and dynamic after-school experience. From swimming and piano lessons to MathCounts Competition and Science Olympiad, students do not want to miss out on after-school.

  • Homework Assistance for K-8 students

  • Outdoor play on Rooftop Playground
  • Recreational Time in Gymnasium
  • Arts & Crafts Projects
