After School Classes:
Explorer’s Club is our after school care that is two sided. It offers students an opportunity to relax and unwind after school while hanging out with friends. It also offers a focus class time in which students are expanding their learning through art, coding/typing, steam challenges and nature exploration. Explorers Club is broken into 5 terms. Each term has a special theme in which students will learn about. Once a term outside speakers and presenters will come into each of the four focus classes to teach a special class. At the end of each term, families are invited into exhibition night to see, experience and learn about what their students have been doing during Explorers Club. Enrollment is a year contract and students may choose to attend two days a week or four days a week. Students are bussed directly from their respective Edina schools to A2D Academy and snacks are provided daily.

Homework Helpers offers a time for students to get help with their homework from a licensed teacher and practice what they are learning in school outside of the school day. Students will be able to work together, independently or guided by a licensed teacher. During this academic practice time students will receive support in areas of growth and be challenged with new engaging material. Students do not need homework everyday, there will be other activities offered to support what students are learning in school even without having assigned homework. Students will receive small group and individual help when needed. Studio instructors will reach out and work with teachers to work on goals for students. Homework Helpers is broken into 5 terms. At the end of each term, families are invited into exhibition night to see, experience and learn about what their students have been doing during Homework. This is also a great time to informally connect with your child’s teacher about student progress.
Students may attend one, two, three or four days a week.
Monday and Thursdays are reading focused and Tuesday and Wednesdays are math focused.
