Aftercare and Enrichment (ACE) 2016-2017

D-E 360° AfterCare & Enrichment (ACE) offers programs that take place after regular school hours as well as some days during the year when the Dwight-Englewood School is not in session.

Our extended day program includes AfterCare activities and Enrichment Elective Classes that extend learning beyond the regular school day, bridging the gap between school and home. The variety of activities offered are creative, educational, and fun, and give students the opportunity to try something new, pursue their interests, and develop their talents further in a safe and nurturing environment.  The ACE program is built on the opening words of our core mission: “As a community of learners Dwight-Englewood School strives to foster in each student a passion for life-long learning…” Our extended day community of educators and staff includes our own D-E faculty and staff, as well as instructors, student volunteers, and coaches from other organizations in the area.

See below and/or visit this website further to learn more about AfterCare activities and Enrichment Elective Classes. We look forward to supporting your child’s growth in learning this year.  If you have any questions please contact us at 201-227-3144 or Email de360info@d-e.org.
