Nightingale's afterschool program offers 15 to 20 workshops each trimester to students in Lower School and—new this year—Class V (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays only). Led by both Nightingale faculty and outside experts, activity choices have included ice skating, drama, swimming, cooking, knitting, dance, horseback riding, photography, tennis, and outdoor recreation. Both active and quiet workshops are available each day.
