Enrichment at STEM is the place students can find all of the school’s after-school, summer, and other enrichment offerings.
Because many of the offerings are as unique as our school is, we invite students from throughout the Denver metro area to participate in our Enrichment program.
Through Enrichment at STEM, students can participate in a variety of amazing clubs and programs, in arts, athletics, robotics, technology, and a variety of special interests.

Fall 2020 Offerings

We are monitoring all updates from a state, district, and school level in regards to COVID-19. Thank you for your patience as we delay posting registration for Fall Enrichment programs to accommodate new start dates. Please check back soon.

Summer 2020 Offerings

**Following the direction of other nearby school districts and out of an abundance of caution, STEM School Highlands Ranch will not host any Enrichment summer camp programs during summer 2020. Some camps may offer a virtual option – stay tuned for more details. Families that have already registered will receive full refunds.
BASE Programming will determine their own course of action following direction from Douglas County School District. Please keep an eye on their website for further information.

Before/After School Care

Important Update – As of August 19

Despite previous communication that we will offer our normal after-school care program for middle/high school students, we are currently unable to offer this program for the next two weeks. This program would usually take place from 2:55 to 6 p.m. but will not be available. Unfortunately, due to an inability to hire for this position, we are unable to provide supervision for this program. We currently have (and have had) the position open and posted and hope to fill it as soon as possible. We know this is a critical need for many families, and we are continuing to seek out options to offer the program.

We are still able to offer Before School Care from 7:00am to 7:30 a.m., Monday through Thursday.

Thank you,
Sara Phelps
