Important Distinctions between Study Hall and After School Program

Study Hall runs on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 3-4 pm and proctored by two current Sally Borden Program Teachers. The Study Hall is one hour long and the teachers are there to assist students with their homework.

Students may then engage in outdoor play time, indoor play time, or continue with their homework. The After School program is proctored by four or five young adults.

The Friends Academy Song Circles
In the paradigm of how music has been taught and shared for centuries, we want to continue and foster this tradition in our community. Join us the first Friday of every month, beginning in November, from 5-6:00 pm in the Commons. This is an offering for our parent/adult community. Bring your acoustic instruments. Play. Sing. Share. Follow along. Or we’ll follow you. Hosted by our very own Putnam Murdock.
