Middle School After-School Activities
After-school Activities (ASAs) provide additional opportunities for middle school students to explore and develop their personal interests. Activities are offered Wednesdays and Fridays from 4 p.m. - 5:15 p.m. at no cost to our students. Each is facilitated by our middle school faculty and has no more than 20 students per activity.
Some activities are an extension of current in-school extracurricular clubs (e.g., Robotics), while others are only offered after school (e.g. MS News). All ASAs are offered on a trimesterly basis. Students can change their selection or continue with the same activity throughout the year.
Example activities include:
Middle School News
Instrumental Music Program
In Chadwick’s Instrumental Music Program (IMP), students learn to play an instrument of their choice through individual lessons conducted once a week after school. As they persevere in their practice, they learn to love music, hone their artistry and become confident in their creative self-expression.
Lessons are provided by a Chadwick teacher or outside instructor aligned with Chadwick’s educational goals. Participating students will have the opportunity to perform in one recital per semester and can choose to study from among the following instruments:
Korean Scholastic Credentials Recognition (KSCR)
The Korean Scholastic Credential Recognition (KSCR) program give Middle School students an opportunity to take Korean (language and literature) within the school day and Korean Social Studies courses in an after-school program. Students earn qualification for completing the regular course of Korean middle school.
The program helps establish identity education for Korean national students and prepares them for Korean college admissions. It also supports the International Baccalaureate (IB) program, which emphasizes “mother tongue” language education. Through the KSCR, Korean students at Chadwick are not required to take the Korean GED test — a prerequisite for Korean university admissions.
