After School

After School Enrichment Courses

After School enrichment at Berkeley Carroll is designed to provide children with enjoyable and educational experiences in the creative arts, the sciences, and athletics.

Courses are developed for a variety of age and interest levels and taught by Berkeley Carroll faculty members as well as other experienced professionals during three sessions: fall, winter, and spring.

Most classes meet once a week, for a period of 8-13 weeks. Times, locations, exact dates of class meetings, and fees are indicated in the course descriptions below. All children in the After School program are escorted from their classrooms to their After School course at the end of the regular school day.

Course Registration

Registration for spring courses is online ONLY through Veracross and will open on Tuesday, March 10th at 12:00pm. Parents will need to log into their Veracross account to access the After School enrichment course registration.

Courses are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Popular courses fill up very quickly after registration begins, so make your plans accordingly. Registration is ongoing until classes are filled. Spring 2020 courses begin March 30th and finish on June 5th.

If you are interested in a class that is already full, please contact Chris Flores at
