Auxiliary Programs

The Swain Experience doesn’t start and stop with the regular school day – the opportunities for learning and fun are available before school, after school, and even during the summer.


Swain Explorations are optional classes offered throughout the year during after school hours.  Topics range from health & wellness to deeper experiences with coding & robotics.  All costs incurred for Swain Explorations are added to family tuition bills for ease of registration.

See the great Swain Explorations offered in the Winter 2020 here!  It is still uncertain whether we will be able to offer Swain Explorations this fall due to COVID-19.


Before- and after-school care is available during the regular school year for Swain students of all ages. Families may schedule specific days for their children to use this service. Due to specific measures required to maintain health and safety protocols, we can not accommodate walk-ins to Extended Care this year. All participants will need to register in advance.

This program includes crafts, games, and play as well as educational opportunities. It gives children a quiet place to do their homework and class assignments under the supervision of a staff member. In addition to indoor activities, students enjoy several outdoor areas on our 20-acre campus.

Before school care is offered at a nominal charge from 7:00 - 7:30 a.m., and after school from 3:10 - 5:30 p.m.  A detailed cost structure is provided on the registration form linked below.

Extended Care Registration Form

We may also be able to offer child care for current Swain students only on select 'no school' days. More information will be shared regarding those options closer to the time.  In the event we are able to provide child care for select days when school is not in session, we will use this form to register.

Active learning at Swain continues during the summer!

We had a wonderful slate of fabulous summer options in 2019 and look forward to providing excellent summer programs again in 2021!
