Beyond the Bell provides a time for students to explore an academic, athletic, or social interest outside of the school day. The small class size allows for individual growth and accomplishment in a chosen field of activity. Opportunities to socialize with peers and work with a highly supportive faculty are offered for enrichment for learners in both the Lower and Middle School divisions, kindergarten through eighth grade.
Please note:Currently, all planned Beyond the Bell programming has been designed to take place remotely, from 4:00-4:45 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and from 3:00-3:45 p.m. on Wednesdays, unless noted otherwise. This allows students the opportunity to step away from their screens and have a break at the end of their instructional day, to grab a snack, read a book, play or relax until enrichment begins. Session times have been shortened to forty-five minutes to keep students engaged and connected, without contributing to digital fatigue. Beyond the Bell participants are expected to uphold the Buckley Commitment and Zoom etiquette guidelines as in our regular school day.
Parents will be billed by The Buckley School Business Office for all programs and materialfees. Payment is not available online. The number of classes held in the Afterschool Programs session determines instruction fees. The Performing Arts Conservatory (PAC) fees are based on the number and length of lessons given.
A student is enrolled in order of receipt of the application. Enrollment is limited. Confirmation of enrollment will be sent via email. If a selection is closed, a student will be placed on a waiting list. In case a vacancy occurs during the session, the waiting list is honored. Classes are subject to cancellation if under-enrolled.
Withdrawal and Refund Policy
Due to the fact that teachers base their curriculum and planning upon initial enrollment, there is no refund after the second class meeting. Written notice of cancellation is required and should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Refunds are not given for school closures due to unforeseen natural disasters, or school-related field trips. Prorating is not offered for late enrollment.

Next year, our Beyond the Bell programs will go until 6:00 p.m. We hope this change will better support our working parents and guardians.
