Exciting New Programs for Middle-schoolers

Middle school programming is a collaboration aimed at getting more 6th-8th grade youth together. Throughout the year, there are programs that allow middle schoolers on the North Shore and in Metrowest to come together and have an introduction to teen programming before high school.

Our programs generally happen Sunday afternoon and include lunch. Check out our calendar for the 2018-2019 school year!
