Washington Latin’s MAGIS Afterschool Program is offered to middle school students for enrichment after classes end. MAGIS participants will have an opportunity to register for a variety of programs throughout the 2018-2019 school year, from STEM to arts to movement and games.
The program operates from 3:20 pm to 6:00 pm, Monday-Thursday. The program is not offered on Fridays, school holidays nor half-days. Students may enroll for 1 to 4 days per week per session or for the entire year. Drop-in is also possible, though we may not be able to accommodate students joining a particular program as it is offered on as an as-is basis.
Students who love to cook – or don’t know how but want to learn – should check out this new offering! Led by a Washington Latin alumna and culinary artist (in training!), this is a fun way to explore making a range of dishes.
