    Upper School After School Programs

    Students in grades 9-12 are encouraged to participate in one or more creativity, action or service extra curricular activities and/or join an athletic team during each of the three trimesters.  

    Programs normally start at 3:00 or 3:15 pm and usually finish between 4:00 and 4:30 pm. Dwight faculty and staff lead the programs. Applicable fees for all upper school after-school programs are listed during the activity registration. Registration for upper school activities/athletic teams takes place online three times a year.  

    Students in grades 9 & 10 may document their hours in service activities on their ManageBac accounts. Students in grades 11 & 12 may document their hours in Creative, Action and Service activities on their ManageBac accounts.
