Carlthorp School offers an optional after school program that includes a variety of clubs, taught primarily by Carlthorp teachers, that allow students of all ages to have fun, play, and experiment with new extracurricular activities. 
Most clubs end between 4:00 and 4:45 p.m. and Late Care is offered until 5:00 p.m.

A wide spectrum of programs have been offered over the past years. Clubs vary each trimester, but Homework Club, Theatre Ensemble, Chorus, and Orchestra are available year round.

In addition, as a service to parents, Late Care is provided free of charge.

    Our after school Chorus and Orchestra are two additional opportunities for students in 1st through 6th Grade to continue making music.
