The Academies

The First Academy announces The Academies, an all-encompassing after-school program that includes team sports and sports clinics, performing and fine arts classes, as well as enrichment classes for students ages Preschool through 5th Grade. The Academies is designed to offer students exposure to a wide variety of activities and experiences throughout their time in Lower School.

The majority of The Academies sports and classes are offered after school in four yearly sessions with advanced registration.

Session 1: August 22, 2022 – October 1, 2022

Session 2: October 10, 2022 – November 18, 2022

Session 3: January 23, 2023 – March 3, 2023

Session 4: March 20, 2023 – April 28, 2023

Each program will include one practice or class per week and will be approximately one hour in length, beginning after the school day ends. Please note that some sports will have an additional day for practice or games. The Academies also has year-long dance and choir programs. Additional sports clinics, typically led by our Varsity TFA Coaches, will be added throughout the year before or after the sessions listed above. An enrollment fee is required for all students registering.
