After School 2019-2020 for Students who Attend The Quad Prep School
Looking for our community classes? Click here
A break from the traditional Quad Manhattan model of after school programming, classes that serve children who attend school at Quad Prep are entirely talent-based and reinforce, rather than directly teach and reinforce, the social-emotional and executive functioning skills that are developed throughout their school day. Quad Manhattan staff consult directly with Quad Prep clinicians regularly to carry-over the work that is being done at Quad Prep. After school for Quad Prep students still offers regular parent communication, including a monthly newsletter and twice per semester individual progress updates. Finally, classes for Quad Prep students are conveniently located within The Quad Prep facility and begin immediately following the school day Monday-Friday.
