There are a variety of after school activities offered to Lower and Middle School students throughout the year. Lower School students may attend Extended Day, an after school enrichment program. Homework Clinic, a program designed to help with organization and study skills, is offered to both Lower and Middle School students. After School Study Hall, a proctored study hall, is also available to Middle School students.
The Extended Day calendar closely follows that of the Lower School. Therefore, Extended Day is closed for all regularly scheduled school holidays. It is also closed when school is canceled for weather-related events. However, on Lower School conference days, when the Lower School is closed to students, Extended Day operates an all-day program from 7:30 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. These all-day programs have special activities distinct from the daily curriculum. These days require pre-registration, as they are not included in the normal Extended Day fee schedule.
The Sayre Extended Day staff members are professionally prepared to meet the program goals and provide a safe, nurturing, and stimulating experience for children after school.

Lower School Homework Clinic, guided by Lower School faculty, is a fee-based program designed to help students with organization and study skills, as well as assist with specific homework assignments.

The fee for Homework Clinic is $25 per day and is billed from the Sayre Business Office each month. Students are encouraged to attend at least two sessions per week. This enables staff to monitor progress effectively and provide consistent help for planning assignments.

Academic Study Hall is designed to help middle school students with organization and study skills as well as to assist with general homework assignments, and to monitor students as they complete their tasks. Academic Study Hall is staffed by Middle School faculty.
Students in Academic Study Hall stay in the Middle School building (room 204) to work on homework with a faculty member who is familiar with the assignments. Work is closely monitored and the goal is homework completion before a student goes home. This program is designed for working parents, students who need structure, and anyone who wants to go home with no further assignments.
Academic Study Hall is available Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3:30 to 5:30 and on Tuesdays from 2:30 to 4:30. Students not picked up by 5:30 (4:30 on Tuesdays) will be accompanied to Extended Day, which is open until 5:45pm. The program includes a snack. The fee for Academic Study Hall is $20 per day and is billed from the Sayre Business Office each month.For more information or to sign up for Academic Study Hall, please contact Linda Chambers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
