Extended Day


As a 21st Century school, learning at Hilltop Country Day School extends far beyond the classroom with a wide array of extracurricular offerings before and after school. These activities cultivate a lively environment where learning, ideas, facts and skills are developed and exchanged among students and teachers. The extended day schedule at Hilltop offers a variety of enrichment classes, including music and sports throughout the school year, and have been designed to provide all our students with opportunities for explorations, peer connections and fun. Hilltop faculty, as well as, outside instructors, musicians and coaches are motivated and excited to instruct and inspire.


The Extended Day Program provides supervised before and/or after school care for students in all grades. The program offers quality care in a mixed age environment. The purpose of the program is to meet the needs of both students and parents. Students are provided a welcoming place in which to play games, work on projects or spend time with friends. Parents are given a convenient flexible childcare option. The Extended Day Program serves all students on either an occasional or a regular basis.
