The Later Alligator Program (LAP) offers a diverse range of enjoyable activities, available Monday through Thursday from school dismissal until 5:30 p.m. Under the supervision of qualified teachers and coaches, boys have the opportunity to pursue different interests, stay physically active, and work on school assignments.
LAP has three sessions: Fall, Winter, and Spring. Activity offerings change seasonally. Information on the upcoming season is distributed to parents via e-mail as well as posted on this web page several months in advance. Activities meet once a week for the fall, winter, or spring season, allowing for a custom mixture of activities for a boy’s interests throughout the school year. Most after-school activities require additional tuition, and students who are currently receiving financial aid may seek funds towards them.
Kindergator Session (2:00 - 3:00 p.m.) LAP begins at 2:00 p.m. for Kindergarten boys. Kindergator sessions take place in kindergarten classrooms and finish at 3:00 p.m. Boys should be picked up in the kindergarten classrooms. Kindergarten boys participating in the next LAP session will be taken to Break Time.
Break Time (3:00 - 3:30 p.m.) Boys in grades I - III participating in LAP are dismissed from their homerooms at 3:00 p.m. Boys staying for LAP will attend Break Time—a supervised study, play, and snack time—which meets from 3:00 - 3:30 p.m. in Junior School classrooms. After Break Time, boys will be picked up by their LAP teacher for their 3:30 p.m. activity.
Lap Activities (3:30 - 4:45 p.m.) Junior School boys will be picked up by their LAP teacher for their 3:30 p.m. activity. Middle School boys will go to their 3:30 p.m. LAP activity on their own. LAP ACTIVITIES END AT 4:45 p.m. At 4:45 p.m., the boys will be brought by their teacher to the lobby for dismissal. Boys participating in Last LAP will be picked up in the lobby by the Last LAP teacher.
