Enrichment Program

Purpose & Mission

Designed for students Grades P3-8, our exciting enrichment program boasts a wide variety of opportunities that cultivate an environment in which young people flourish: one that challenges their minds, expands their social awareness, reinforces their moral growth and promotes an active life style.

The mission of the SMCS Enrichment Program is to offer lower cost alternatives to our students, build community among our SMCS elementary students, help families enjoy more time together at night and expose our kids to STEM and other programs that they may not otherwise get a chance to try.
