Cedar Hill Prep School offers a wide variety of After School Clubs and Programs to meet the age, interests and needs of our students. Activities are offered quarterly with each session running approximately 6-8 weeks. Parent pick-up is required in order to have your child(ren) participate in the After School program. If parents are late to pick up their child(ren) in the appropriate time, their child(ren) will be sent to Aftercare which they will incur a charge for the time spent in Aftercare.
Aftercare days/times are as follows: Monday – Friday 2:30pm – 6:00pm (depending on grade). Anyone picked up after 6:00pm will incur a late fee paid in cash to the supervising counselor at the time of pick-up. Please refer to the Tuition Form for Aftercare prices.
After School Clubs
The main purpose for Art Club is to allow the kids to have fun while figuring out who they are and what they like. Art Club is an opportunity for students to try new mediums and explore their creative side.
As we know, the demand for professionals in automation requiring computer science and related disciplines continues to escalate dramatically. Cultivating a generation with Computational Thinking and Engineering is becoming indispensable.
In the robotics club students receive the dynamic knowledge offered under interdisciplinary robotics program. It covers mechanical functions to build mobile contraptions, and heavily focuses on programming to create autonomous robots. Students program their robots to solve various challenging projects that simulate real life scenarios. All projects are conducted through engineering process. It aims to build and strengthen students’ analytical and computational skill. Inherently, it will make engineering intuition and thinking outside the box as second nature.
The Robotics Club at CHP is run by Mrs. Bhalla in liaison with Storming Robots. She has taught robotics to Grades 4 to 10 in the past four years at the adroit robotics learning center, Storming Robots. Storming Robots has proven its success in building students in engineering education career in college, through their students’ achievements.

Ceramics – (Grades 5-8)
Ceramics Club meets once a week. Students work on handbuilding skills. Projects include free-form bowls, cups, and plates to get used to how the pottery responds to pressure. More advanced projects are spoon people, rolled out clay for face masks and animal masks, lids for vessels, and how to form 3-legged vessels. Handles will also be explored.
All pieces are brought to Casa Galiano Art Studios for bisque firing in the kiln (www.casagaliano.com).
Then various firing techniques will be used on the pieces such as Raku firing, and Obvara firing.
The students are learning properties of clay and glazes as they change from one state to another. The class is held weekly until the end of the school year.
Chess – (Kindergarten – 6)

Bricks 4 Kidz
Kidz® is devoted to providing an extraordinary atmosphere for children, where we learn, we build, and we play with LEGO® Bricks. Classes are designed to teach the fundamentals of S.T.E.M.
