Lower and Middle School Co-Curriculars

 

Co-Curriculars

Alverno Heights Academy encourages its students to reach out – to explore new horizons, to get involved in global concerns, and to help shape ideas and technologies of the future. Instruction in music, drama, and art is considered an integral part of each child’s education. All Alverno students participate in some form of student activities. Alverno Heights Academy is delighted to offer many robust Co-Curricular programs, a varied after-school club program, and after-school care. Designed to offer exposure to new skills and areas of interest, keep those who are strong in sports stretched, as well as to encourage new friendships, our after-school club program varies from term to term. All activities are designed to be enjoyable and age-appropriate, therefore some options are not available to our youngest students.
