Hosted by Allendale Columbia School, AC Encore provides extracurricular opportunities that give participants a chance to dig deeper and become strong, independent thinkers and effective problem solvers. Each quarter there are fantastic options for students in pre-kindergarten through grade 12 from all area schools.

Students enrolled in after school AC Encore classes with a 3:30 p.m. start time can gather in the Project Corner starting at 3:00 p.m. for a light snack and supervised play before classes begin. Child care is available in the Rainbow Room until as late as 6:00 p.m., and this year you can sign up for one day of class, one quarter AC Encore classes, or the whole year.
