Offered Monday through Thursday, MCS’ thriving Afterschool program provides families with extended-day    coverage through a wealth of enrichment classes for Lower and Upper School students. From Mandarin language and culture classes to robotics to cooking, students in Afterschool learn by doing—a Manhattan Country School credo.

A hallmark of MCS’ Afterschool program is mixed-age grouping, where children of different grades interact, learn from each other and form friendships through the program.

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