Enrichment Programs for Students

At Old Town Academy, we aim to develop well-rounded students who can apply their knowledge, passion, and virtues to areas outside of the classroom. Our enrichment programs empower students to develop their skills in subjects or activities they’re interested in, which helps turn students into lifelong learners who are curious and self-motivated.

What’s an Enrichment Program?

An enrichment program is an after-school program that gives students the opportunity to further develop their skills, especially in subjects they’re interested in.

It’s important to understand that an enrichment program is not an after-school daycare. Each enrichment program is an extension of classroom learning that helps create well-rounded students.


Why Do Enrichment Programs Matter?

At Old Town Academy, we strive to develop students who become active thinkers and lifelong learners. To foster these qualities in our students, we encourage them to participate in activities beyond the classroom and book-based learning.

These activities—whether athletic, creative, or intellectual—provide invaluable personal and academic benefits for students that include:

  • Higher resilience and motivation
  • Improved confidence, self-expression, and self-esteem
  • Improved social development
  • Opportunities to try new activities and gain perspectives
  • Encouragement to pursue broader goals

At Old Town Academy, we encourage our students to participate in programs that interest them and spur personal development, even activities that aren’t school-sanctioned enrichment programs.

However, the enrichment programs we offer instill the same core virtues and teaching methodologies that we practice during the school day, so they’re an excellent supplement to our classroom instruction.


What Enrichment Programs Are There at OTA?

We offer a wide variety of enrichment programs at Old Town Academy. Here are just a few of the programs we offer students:

  • Ballet
  • Violin
  • Piano
  • Karate
  • Soccer
  • Tennis
  • Yoga
  • Volleyball
  • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)
  • Chess
  • Robotics
  • And more!

If your student is interested in a subject or activity that’s not reflected in one of our enrichment programs, we could potentially help the student create a new enrichment program, or our faculty members can offer persistent guidance on how the student can effectively and meaningfully pursue this activity outside of the classroom.
