Lower School After-School Programs

After-school programs allow Lower School students the opportunity to make use of time after school has ended by exploring various interests, taking time to complete homework, or enjoying time with friends.
Prime Time is a unique opportunity for Out-of-Door Academy Lower School students to experience various enrichment clubs, sports, and other unique activities outside of the classroom. The sessions offered each quarter vary according to student interest. Examples of programs offered include cooking, media production, ceramics, and karate. Encore music lessons allow students to further develop piano, woodwind, guitar, voice, and strings skills at The Out-of-Door Academy. One-on-one and group instruction is available for students of all ages. 
Intramural Program for 4th and 5th Grade Students
The Out-of-Door Academy offers an intramural program for 4th and 5th grade students. This exciting program meets twice a week and allows our older students the chance to focus on various sports during the intramural program and prepare for entry into our Middle School programs. Six-week sessions focus on the further development of volleyball, football, soccer, softball, and basketball skills throughout the year.  
Extended Day “After Care”
After Care is available to all students after the official school day ends. Students are given time to work on homework and participate in activities and play time. Students who participate in the After Care program also enjoy time to connect with friends from other classes and grade levels.
Transportation:  To allow for full access to these programs by all of our students, transportation after school hours is provided with a late bus route which leaves Siesta Key at 4:30 each day. 

For details about after-school programs, current parents should access Resources within myODA.
