Cannon School’s Beyond the Bell programs

At Cannon School,  our Beyond the Bell’s Extended Day and After School programs provide students with a comfortable, safe, and caring environment in which to participate in constructive activities during after school hours.

Based on this foundation, our instructors recognize each child as an individual while teaching values and creating experiences that go beyond the classroom learning environment. Parents can enroll students from one-to-five days per week or choose the “drop-in” option.

Junior Kindergarten/Kindergarten
Extended Day Program
12:15 p.m.-3:00 p.m.

Children build on their classroom learning experiences while participating in hands-on activities built around thematic units such as cooking, science, etiquette, healthy living habits, safety, language, and arts and crafts. Activities are designed to develop logical thinking skills, character development, and social awareness.

Junior Kindergarten-4th Grade
After School Program

3:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m.

Children unwind after a day of classroom learning before participating in quiet study time, organized outdoor activities, and classroom learning in subjects such as science, drama, math, and arts and crafts. (This program is available for children five years and older.)

Middle School (Grades 5-8)
After School Program
3:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m.

Our Middle School students begin the afternoon with time to relax after a day of classroom learning. Students then participate in a 45-minute study session before moving on to indoor and outdoor activities such as basketball, ping-pong, and assorted games. Students also have the opportunity to cheer on the Cougars during home athletic events. At this age level, students are given greater independence in choosing their activities while still benefiting from adult supervision.

Extracurricular Enrichment

Beyond the Bell now offers an expanded collection of extracurricular enrichment programs for Lower, Middle, and Upper School students and parents. These offerings provide children with the opportunity to ignite their imagination, pursue their passions, and develop skills in a variety of areas including the arts, athletics, the humanities, and even private music lessons.
