Academy After Hours on Tuesdays
Academy After Hours is every Tuesday (except the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and the Tuesday of Conferences) from 2:30 – 4:30. Attending these sessions help students work a little at a time on their assignments and begin to develop the time management skills they need.
During After Hours students can use school computers to work on assignments, join student groups, form study groups, consult with teachers, and develop working relationships with teachers and students at Academy.
We provide free popcorn to those who choose to stay. There is a late bus that will shuttle students back to any DMPS middle or high school– they just have to sign up for the bus when they get their popcorn.
Students are welcome to stay for Afters Hours as it fits their schedule. Students are not required to stay the entire time, for example. Sometimes parents pick up students on their way home from work at 4:00 or 4:15.
Unfortunately, for those students who only attend Academy in the morning, their are no buses available after school to pick students up from home schools and return them to Academy for After Hours.
