Offered Monday through Thursday, MCS’s thriving Afterschool program provides families with extended-day coverage through a wealth of enrichment activities for Lower School students and, beginning in 2022, 5th and 6th Graders. From African drumming to environmental exploration to movie-making to coding, students in Afterschool learn by doing—a Manhattan Country School credo.

Historically, the hallmark of MCS’s Afterschool program is mixed-age groupings, where children of different grades interact, learn from each other, and form friendships. This year, students are cohorted by age group and Afterschool teachers are rotating through the groups to ensure that all students get a chance to experience all activities. It is our goal to return to mixed-age groupings once health and safety guidelines allow.

There are two semesters of Afterschool each academic year (Fall and Spring), with no gap between semesters to ensure continued extended-day coverage.

  • Fees

    For the 2021 - 2022 school year, all classes will be fixed at a cost of 50 dollars per day, with no additional materials fees. This covers a daily snack and two hours of programming. Families enrolling more than one child receive a discount of 10 percent and those enrolling for all four days receive a 15 percent discount. As with tuition, monthly payment plans will be available. 
    The cost of Afterschool is determined based on what is needed to properly compensate our teachers while maintaining our low student to teacher ratio and may change from year to year. The department is working to move the auxiliary programs onto a sliding-scale similar to tuition.
  • Emergency Childcare

    MCS offers emergency childcare to accommodate last-minute changes in parents’ and caregivers’ schedules at a fee of 50 dollars per day. Those needing to utilize Emergency Afterschool should contact the Director of Auxiliary Programs on the day they need coverage.
