Throughout the year, ECFS is home to a wide variety of creative and academic programs for students. The after-school programs at Ethical Culture and Fieldston Lower, for example, offer more than 150 courses in art, music, drama, sports, science, foreign language, community service, and computer education for students in kindergarten through grade 5. Two special programs--Fieldston Enrichment Program (FEP) and Young Dancemakers--are private/public collaborations that engage ECFS and the wider world. FEP offers academic and enrichment programs to middle school students from the public schools; Young Dancemakers is a summer ensemble open to public high school students in New York City.
The program begins September 19, 2016, and ends June 2, 2017, observing all school holidays. Classes meet once a week at 8:00 am.
