Bentley Programs
 Bentley A Step Ahead-an afterschool tutoring program for all students on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 235 until 325 in our beautiful library.  Bentley mentors will help students with homework, projects, study skills, etc. Everyone is welcome! ASA starts Tuesday 9/27.
Brandeis Programs
Afternoon Enrichment- an afterschool program on Thursdays in which Brandeis University brings a bus to McDevitt and Kennedy and transports students to the Brandeis campus to help/tutor students who have social issues and could use a mentor.  This is a fun time for the students to work together with team building activities,  have a snack, and also work for an hour with an individual mentor. A great program for students who might be shy or lack confidence in learning or socializing.  Students are returned back to McD, or a few other stops in Waltham, so a permission slip is absolutely required.
