After School Enrichment
After School Enrichment at MPA includes more than 60 different extra-curricular groups representing a broad spectrum of interests for students of all ages. Some of these groups reflect students’ modern interests, while others are deeply grounded in the history of our school.
If a student’s passions and experiences are not represented by the activities currently offered, he or she can propose a new group. This type of student initiative, leadership, and service is encouraged and celebrated.
Sustained and meaningful involvement in after-school activities is one of the many goals we have for our students at MPA. Beyond the classroom, this involvement provides special opportunities for community building as students work towards common goals. Leadership skills, responsibility, friendship, a sense of belonging, and self-esteem are often developed as students become committed to a club, team, or group.
