after school programs

Still here, and safer.

Rainey Institute’s After School programs offer a safe, enriching place for children to spend time after school. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic we have revised our programming to ensure we can keep our staff and children safe and healthy. This year, our program will run Monday – Friday from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, caring adults cultivate self-expression and social-emotional growth through arts education. A grab and go meal will be provided along with a high quality arts experience to children beginning at 2nd grade. Rainey Institute’s After School program designs include the following:

Intergalactic ARTS

Grades K– 8th

Expand your creativity and performing ability in Rainey’s Arts Enrichment after school program. Students participate musical theater or visual arts the first semester then switch for the second semester. Every child will get the chance to dazzle their family and friends in a final performance or showcase their art at Rainey’s Art Exhibition.

El Sistema

“I like students to know more emotional competency, emotional self-awareness, and make better decisions in their lives which affects change on a social level.”
