REAP: After-School Program
Providing the opportunity to have fun, while learning through new activities and socializing with your peers, is the main goal of Summit’s Recreational Enrichment After-School Program (REAP). Two program sessions are offered during the school year with a variety of popular activities for our students (see general course descriptions below). Additionally, our tennis club plays at the Cunningham Park Tennis Center while those students interested in pursuing the game of chess can do so under the guidance of our National Chess Master.
REAP is provided as an optional program for students and all classes have a nominal fee. The fall session runs from mid-September to mid-January and the spring session runs from late January to mid-May.
