Open to Kids and Teens After School and Homeschoolers.

Thrive offers academic and enrichment programs and is NOT a school nor a childcare. All participants must be enrolled in a public, private or charter school or file a private school affidavit.

We are happy to provide social, science, art and creative experiences for local homeschoolers and kid's after school.

2022-23 (Registration Opens May 2nd)

Registration Information:

*Registration is for the entire school year.
*Pricing and payments are monthly.
Once you are in a group you will remain in that group every month unless you give us a 15-day notice of withdrawal or schedule change request. If you don't plan to attend every month please let us know so you will not be charged. There are no half off months this year.
*Spaces are limited so register soon. Registration is first-come, first-served and gives preference to returning families.
* Mid-month registration can be prorated if there is space in a group.

Thrive operates Labor Day to Memorial Day and follows CUSD for days off.
