In addition, Open School offers various fee-based after school classes.  There are usually three eight-week sessions per year, with most classes meeting for one hour once a week.  Some classes are offered every session, others just once a year.  Some of these classes are led by the enrichment specialists who teach at Open during the regular school day.  STAR also offers some classes that are open to students not enrolled in their full or part-time programs.

After school options are in addition to and separate from Open's curricula, and they occur outside the regular school day.  See the Enrichment page to learn more about the enrichment programs that integrate with classroom work during the regular school day.

Additional information about after school options is coming soon.  Information will also be provided at the Back-to-School Picnic and during the First Day of School Parent Orientation.
