What Makes Us So Special
Cambridge Academy’s after school program is an ideal time to supplement the academic curriculum offered at public school. Our after school program is designed to provide a variety of choices for the maturing elementary student. We feel that the time spent at Cambridge should be filled with quality activities that peek the interest and imagination of our students.
Our after school program provides transportation to and from your child’s public school. We also provide full day care during holidays and in-service days at no extra cost to you.
*** Our primary goal at Cambridge Academy is to assist our students in establishing a good homework routine. We feel that completing homework assignments in a quiet environment at Cambridge Academy can help reserve time at home for family activities.
A wide variety of fun indoor and outdoor activities are provided to fill our school age student’s day when their homework is completed.
Friday is Club Day – the children can choose to join one of the four clubs we offer each semester. Each club meets once a month. Club examples; Science, Chess, Cooking, Drama, Music, Magic, sewing and more.
In The Stage Room the children will enjoy taking off their shoes and playing a game of Freeze Dance on the stage or using it to sing Karaoke. A home living center is nestled in the corner of the room with dramatic play items for the children to relax or go on an adventure. The children quickly learn that by cooperating with each other they can build wonderful towers, towns and tons of other fun things while playing in the block area.
In The Theater Room the children can eat popcorn while watching a movie in our cinema theater complete with big screen projection and surround sound.
In the Game Room the children go crazy for indoor basketball, air hockey and foosball. Children can take turns playing the latest “E” for everyone video games with each other. An area is also set up for drawing for those who want a quieter activity.
In The Computer Lab the children learn how to use and care for a personal computer. Educational games teach reading, spelling, math and more are available on every computer. Card games and manipulatives are also available.
In The Art Room the children can choose their own materials to create sculptures, paintings and other works of art. An exciting art project is planned for anyone who wants to get those creative juices flowing. Some projects may take days or even weeks to create, so we allow each child plenty of time. Children can step away from the art table and join a friend at the game table or choose any one of our other fun table toy activities.
On The Playground the children can join an organized game or enjoy free play activities. In addition we have a soccer field and basketball court. Our covered patio is great for four square and the picnic tables have a shaded awning for quieter activities. During the summer, our in-ground Swimming Pool is open for both swimming lessons and free swim for everyone.
