After-School Athenaeum

After-School Athenaeum is focused on the liberal arts and promotes learning by providing students dedicated homework time in addition to a diverse array of culturally enriching, academically oriented activities beyond the classroom. Our activities and lessons are aimed at improving students’ scholastic performance by reinforcing the lessons, virtues and curriculum of the classroom.

But it’s not all academics! Athenaeum scholars also enjoy time for recreation, games, socializing and just plain fun. Athenaeum runs daily from the dismissal bell (even on early release and half-days) until 6:00 p.m. Flexible and affordable options are available to fit any family’s after-school needs.

*The Athenaeum (ath-uh-nay-uhm) was originally a school in Rome, founded by Emperor Hadrian in 133 A.D. for the promotion of literary and scientific studies.

Glendale Homework and Enrichment Club
Not offered during 1st, 2nd or 3rd quarter/More details to come


The purpose of the Archway Glendale Homework and Enrichment Club is to provide scholars an opportunity to start homework in a safe environment with an Archway teacher after school. Instead of waiting in the long pick-up lines, scholars will take a much-needed break at the end of the school day for snack and play. Students will then begin focused, silent study.

Register for Archway Glendale Homework and Enrichment Club here.

Club pick-up times: 3:30-3:45 pm on regular days. 12:30-12:45 pm on half days.

*Early release and half days included.
