Fenn's new Auxiliary Programming offers an assortment of courses and activities that are separate from the Fenn curriculum and take place after the school day. Students may be interested in courses because subject matter aligns with a passion or perhaps they would like to try a new activity as an alternative or addition to Fenn's drop-in Extended Day program.
Fees are charged for all auxiliary programs as they are not part of the Fenn curriculum and school day and are often led by subject matter experts who are not necessarily Fenn faculty or staff. For families that receive financial aid, auxiliary courses are offered at the same percentage discount as is applied to Fenn tuition. It is important to Fenn that all students have the opportunity to consider and enjoy auxiliary programs that excite them.
