Welcome to Extend, Parish's dynamic after-school program, designed to serve as an extension of your child's day and curriculum.
Extend strives to offer a range of programs for students of all ages and interests. From PreK Extension to traditional Extended Day and specialized Exploration classes, Extend turns the after-school hours into a time for development, discovery and fun! Extend’s after school partnership with The Academy gives families the ability to combine after school academic programs with Extend classes or Extended Day.
Our Explorations program provides your child with a diverse range of classes, including academics, arts, athletics, and STEM. It offers a unique opportunity for them to delve into a new and exciting interest every day of the week. Learn more.
