Explorer Programs

The Explorer Programs offer our oldest students (children entering Grades 5-8) the option to create their own schedule from a variety of interesting programs geared to challenge the mind and body. Morning and afternoon sessions offer great flexibility and exciting activities for children who want to hone their sports skills, engage in STEAM challenges, build rockets, be a junior economist, explore the joy of cooking, or make a difference in the lives of others through our community service volunteer efforts. Morning and afternoon programs are offered, as well as some full day programs.

RA's Explorer Programs begin at 9am and conclude at 3:30pm. No Before/After Care will be provided. Please note, the NY Red Bulls Soccer Program will conclude at 3pm.
