Enrichment Classes at Peck

The Peck Enrichment Program (PEP) offers students an opportunity to apply what they learn in the classroom to extracurricular learning that is fun, engaging, and sparks their passions! Students can hone their skills in a variety of subjects from chess, dance, art, sports, or cooking—all infused with Peck's core values and high standards.

PEP sessions are offered during the fall, winter, and spring.  Each session is eight weeks long, with courses meeting weekly during that time period. All courses are taught by Peck teachers and other professional educators or industry experts.

  • All PEP classes run from 3 - 4:05 p.m.

  • PEP Classes will dismiss at 4:05 p.m.

  • Parents can pick up their children between 4:05 - 4:15 p.m. If you arrive prior to 4:05 p.m. you will be asked to park and wait in your vehicle.
  • Parents will receive a welcome email prior to their first class from teachers with pick-up instructions, any materials needed, and other notes and reminders.

Courses are $250 each per session and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Payment may be made through your Peck SmartTuition account.
