The McAuliffe Enrichment program provides a variety of classes every day. Session 1 classes run from 2:30 - 3:45 and Session 2 classes run from 3:45 - 5:00. Some classes are taught by in-house teachers and instructional aids with areas of interest and expertise that may surprise you! Other classes are taught by outside professionals such as a published author, professional artists, staff from the YMCA, parents, and alumni. We also have groups such as DEILAB, Chess Wizards, tutors from the Framingham Public Library Homework Center, and Paul Effman music coming in to bring their programs to your scholars at McAuliffe. The classes offered are designed to be both fun and challenging. Once they sign up, please encourage your scholar to continue with classes they choose to receive the full benefit offered. The vision of the enrichment program is consistent with McAuliffe’s vision to “create learning environments where students achieve more than they think possible, become allies and ‘upstanders’ in a kind and welcoming school community, and actively contribute to building a better world.”
