After School – Middle School

Manhattan Youth provides a comprehensive menu of activities for students of all interests and grades at Quest to Learn Middle School. Funded through the Dept. of Youth and Community Development, after school programs are free of charge for families. This year, we’re happy to welcome back popular activities like Theater, Volleyball, and LEGO Robotics, along with some new offerings like Basketball Skills Clinic, Hip Hop Poetry and Parkour.

After school activities run in two sessions: 3:00 – 4:15 p.m. and 4:15 – 5:30 p.m. Students meet in the cafeteria for snack and check-in immediately after school, at 2:25 p.m. The after school program operates on a trimester calendar.

This year, Fall activities run from September 9th–November 22nd; Winter activities run from November 25th–March 13th; and Spring activities run from March 16th–June 19th.

After School – Upper School

Quest to Learn has a partnership with Hudson Sailing. Students must enroll in 9th grade, and they are part of the Sail Academy, in which they increase proficiency in math by learning basic sailing, navigation, and boat building. Through this opportunity they earn a math and PE credit. Upon successful completion, they go to First Mate: ongoing mentoring, competitive racing, college entrance preparation, homework support, summer employment assistance, and career discovery.


Quest to Learn also has a partnership with the Arthur Miller Foundation: Students work and learn side by side with teaching artists from theater and film. They write and produce original pieces which are showcased twice a year in a student led production.
