General Information

After-school opportunities run Monday - Thursday from 3:00 to 5:00pm.  Students are provided a snack and homework help first.  Later in the afternoon, they can enjoy a variety of supervised activities in the Tiger's Den.  Homework Help and Tiger's Den are "drop-in" activities. Popular activities have included BRAVE Olympics, crafting, ping-pong tournaments, Wii game activities, service projects, and snack creations followed by taste testing!

Students only need to register one time at the beginning of the school year.  After that, they are able to come to BRAVE whenever they would like. Special events and enrichment programs are offered throughout the school year.  Some of these programs will require a separate registration.
