Caurus Academy

How is Caurus Explorers Different From Other Extended Care Programs?

The Caurus Explorers Extended Care Program is a program designed to provide before and after care in a safe, enriching environment for students who need it.  Caurus Explorers’ staff  is comprised of Caurus Academy staff who are familiar with your child and your child’s regular classroom teacher.  In addition to time for homework and play, your child will participate in various activities including cultural arts & crafts, fun science experiments, community service, mindfulness education, music & theater, robotics, and much more.  We also organize fun half day camps.
