Enrichment Courses

Extra-curricular programs at Glendale Prep continue to be driven by members of our faculty and reflect the levels of student interest and engagement on campus. In order to join an Enrichment Course, students can simply attend at the time and location noted, and talk to the class leader. After their second attendance, if they wish to continue, the fee must be paid on the Payment Portal. Students can be a member of more than one Enrichment Course, as long as the times do not conflict. All other specific questions can be directed to the faculty leader. Copies of the Enrichment schedule can be found in the front office and below.
