Upper School Afternoon Program
Statement of Purpose
The Afternoon Program expands the Nobles curriculum beyond the traditional classroom, educates the whole student and is integral to building a cohesive Nobles community. Nobles students and teachers work together toward shared goals in the arts, athletics and community service, and in doing so develop an understanding of the importance of teamwork and community.
Finally, the Afternoon Program is rooted in the Community Principles of honesty and respect for self and others.
Nobles also recognizes that some students have deep and abiding interests in offerings not presented by Nobles; we may therefore allow Afternoon Program credit upon petition to the Afternoon Program Certification Committee.
Afternoon Program Requirements

• Classes II & I: Two Afternoon Program seasons, including one season of physical activity.
