    Upper School After School Programs

    Students in grades 9-12 are required to participate in one or more creativity, action or service extra curricular activities or join an athletic team during each of the three trimesters. Seniors who have been certified by the CAS Coordinator by the end of the second term may be exempted by the dean of grade 12 from registering for spring term activities but they are expected to honor any yearlong activity and athletic team commitments.

    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. Fees for all upper school after-school programs students are included in the tuition unless otherwise noted. Registration for upper school activities/athletic teams takes place online three times a year. Students must register anew each term, even when they choose to continue an activity from the previous term.

    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.

    Exemptions
    We encourage every student to participate in the extra curricular activities program but we realize that sometimes due to extenuating circumstances that there are students who are not able to meet this commitment. To receive an exemption, a student must first receive permission from his or her dean and after the permission has been granted, go online each term and check off exempt as his or her activity.
