Clubs & Activities


Skinner West Superstars can participate in a number of on-site and nearby after-school clubs, classes, and activities throughout the year. These sessions are typically held once or twice a week. Programs may vary by quarter.

Those provided by external, approved vendors carry an additional cost. Many offer a “walking bus” where a representative picks up the children directly from school and walks them to the location. Please contact the specific company for more information.
