The Thought Studio is Heathwood’s after-school program for Middle and Upper School students. It provides a space for quiet studying as well as a place for safe fun and socialization.
The Thought Studio is held in the Dining Commons from 3:05 to 5:30, Monday through Friday. A portion of the space will be dedicated to a quiet study hall while other areas will allow for socializing and board games. Students who are not picked up by 5:30 will join Afternoon Express in the mini gym where they should be picked up by 6:00.
Lynn Cooper (Middle School English teacher) and two teachers from the AE team lead the study hall and encourage a respectful learning environment. Middle School teachers are encouraged to communicate with Mrs. Cooper and the AE team in order to support student learning and growth.
The Thought Studio is a free service from 3:05 to 3:30, similar to Extra Help and Afternoon Express around the MS recess area. Beginning at 3:30, families will be charged $11 per hour for their child’s attendance. For families who know they will use the Thought Studio daily for more than one hour per day, they may consider signing up for the Academic Year Plan ($2,863 per year). This tuition can be paid annually, semi-annually, or in ten equal monthly installments.
