Youth Enrichment Classes and Sports
For Forest Hills youth, enrichment classes and sports reinforce and expand upon the school-day experience. Selections that range from reading, math, and science to the arts, computers, athletics, sports, and beyond are offered through the fall, winter, and spring months as after-school classes. During the summer months, our popular program, Summer Academy, offers classes throughout the day, Mondays through Thursdays. Our classes address the interests and needs of preschool to high school students at a variety of convenient locations throughout the district.
