After the academic day is done, Princeton Junior School offers a variety of Enrichment Clubs selected specifically to cater to our students’ interests. These classes allow our students to further explore the arts, science, a variety of sports, and other activities with the help of local professionals in their field. Students are given the opportunity to extend their learning beyond the school day and deepen their understanding in these areas while building their skills and confidence. Enrichment Club offerings are renewed each trimester, ensuring that students can try new activities throughout the school year. Examples of recent clubs offered include coding, game theory, gymnastics, running club, soccer, and messy fun, among many others.

Benefits of Chess: Chess helps develop critical thinking skills, planning ahead, and thinking before acting. Children learn to see patterns, solve problems and become more deliberate. In chess, winning and losing allows children to understand how to handle healthy competition and to learn that having an opponent is OK.
Meet the Teacher: Our chess instructor has immense experience in teaching curriculum and after-school programs for years and will be able to give the right guidance to this budding chess community. International Master Farai Mandizha is an internationally renowned chess player, coach, and a 4 time Chess Olympian

Keighley Farrell is the director of our Extended Day Program, a separate program from the Enrichment Programs. If your child needs to stay beyond the end of their Enrichment Program and they are not signed up for the Extended Day Program, you must contact kfarrell@princetonjuniorschool. Please note: due to covid protocol, there is limited space in the Extended Day Program. If they are able to stay, there is a drop in fee of $30 and your child must be picked up by 6:00pm. The Emergency Contact form must include the names of all adults who are permitted to pick your child up from school. In case of emergency, the Extended Day Program may be reached at 609-924-9175. In the past, we have been able to accommodate emergency drop-ins, but with COVID guidelines, we are requesting that drop-ins sign up by Thursday afternoon for the upcoming week so we are able to plan for staffing and snacks.
