After School in the Middle School is called "Encore!"

Encore! After School serves Dalton's Middle School students in grades 4-8. As an extension of The Serendipity After School Program at First Program, our mission is to create a sense of continuity and natural progression between programs while incorporating a sensitivity to the unique academic and social-emotional issues faced by Middle School students.  Homework Club provides daily support to students as they encounter increasing workloads. Increasingly, Encore! offers educational offerings which expand on the concepts being learned during the school day while continuing to provide a variety of courses which provide enrichment beyond the existing curriculum.  

In addition to eclectic on-site choices, Encore! offers multiple off-site alternatives.  We encourage students to embrace their current interests as well as open themselves up to new and exciting experiences. With subjects ranging from Dance, Visual and Performing Arts, Sciences, Sports, Computer, and Homework Help, etc.after school, our program strives to be responsive to student's evolving needs and to provide relevant and meaningful after-school experiences to all who participate.

Families are encouraged to browse our Staff Page to meet our diverse and talented staff who are professionals in their fields. Our Staff is composed of Dalton Employees, Dalton Parents and Outside Consultants.
