Merritt Academy recognizes the need for quality after-school care and programming for students in grades K-6th, and developed the Merritt
Academy After-School Program (M.A.A.P.) in 2009 to provide safe, fun, enriching after-school programming to students attending area elementary schools.
M.A.A.P. participants receive transportation from their base school to Merritt Academy’s campus immediately after dismissal (including Monday early dismissal), an after-school snack, and a diverse range of activities, including participation in Merritt’s Intergenerational Program, where students visit and interact with the senior residents at the adjacent Sunrise Assisted Living community.
Tuesday through Friday, students in grades 2 through 6 start their afternoons in a teacher-proctored study hall, allowing a quiet environment to complete homework or read. Younger students enjoy recess outside on our expansive playground, followed by games, crafts or read-alouds in the classrooms.
All M.A.A.P. students are eligible to register for our extensive list of on-campus extra-curricular activities, including marital arts, piano lessons, language clubs, computer club and more. Additionally, M.A.A.P. students may be registered for full-day programs during the weeks of winter and spring break. If you are interested in enrolling your child in M.A.A.P., please contact Assistant Principal Renee Hoegberg (ReneeH@merrittacademy.org) for a complete list of participating schools and availability.
MAAP serves public school children in grades K-6. Activities are planned for the children on Mondays, when dismissal is early for elementary schools in Fairfax County, to include an intergenerational visit at Sunrise as well as games and time in the computer lab. Tuesday through Friday the children join the Merritt students in their classroom or on the playground depending on grade level.
