At Schuylerville, we seek to keep the whole child engaged by offering a myriad of opportunities for students to participate in a large variety of after school activities. While tutoring is always available we also want to have students do things they enjoy and feel a passion for. We encourage all students to become a part of after school activities, not only because it offers a chance to do things at school that are fun, but also because its a great way to show school community engagement on college applications!
