Registration for Acera’s 2021-22 In-Person After School Enrichment Programs is open!

Our programs are open to all kids ages 5 and older. We offer experiments for curious scientists, skill building for programmers and artists, and rich discussions for rising philosophers, all taught by specialist educators with passion and field-based expertise. 

All of Acera’s After School programs meet once per week from 3:30-5:30pm and are offered on a trimester basis. In the 2021-22 school year, the schedule of trimesters is as follows:

  • Trimester 1: September 8 through November 23
  • Trimester 2: November 30 through March 11
  • Trimester 3: March 16 through June 10


The cost for our afternoon programs is $40 per day; or $360-$480 per trimester. Please note: Any changes to your child’s enrollments must be made by September 1, one week before classes start. After that date, we will be unable to issue refunds, but can apply the credit toward other enrichment classes. 


Winchester parents! Bus transportation is available from Winchester public schools.

Covid Precautions

General COVID Precautions

We will NOT conduct a daily symptom attestation or screening at check-in. If your child shows any of the symptoms most commonly associated with COVID-19 (upper respiratory symptoms, coughing, severe headache, fever, etc.) or if they have been a close contact to a confirmed COVID-positive individual, please email and keep your child at home. Your student may return to Acera upon receipt of a negative COVID test.

If any of the symptoms most commonly associated with COVID (upper respiratory symptoms, coughing, severe headache, fever, etc.) develop during class, our staff will call you and request that you immediately pick up your child. We have a room specifically designated for sick students to wait until you arrive.

Staff Precautions

100% of Acera’s staff are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Acera staff will wear masks during all class time, regardless of whether the class is indoors or outdoors, and anytime they are indoors. Acera staff are permitted to remove masks during outdoor recess.

Student Precautions

All students and staff wear masks during classes, for both indoor and outdoor classes.

Recess times will be held outdoors, and will be mask-optional for all students and staff. We will include a mask-only zone for students whose families prefer that they play around only masked peers.

All students and staff are expected to practice social distancing anytime they are indoors, and during class time outdoors, other than for momentary interactions such as brief teacher demonstrations with projects.
