After School 2022-2023 

for The Quad Prep School Students

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. Students start their afternoon with 30-45 minutes of recreational transition time where they can hang out, grab a snack, get homework help, study, or play organizing games to wind down for their after school class. Then, they transition to an activity of their choice with peers for 75-90 minutes of talent development.
