After School Programming

Queens Paideia is located in the same building as the Long Island City School of Ballet, the Secret Theatre, and a plethora of talented people who make LIC one of the most talked-about neighborhoods in New York City. By partnering with them and organizations from Manhattan and Brooklyn, QPS is able to offer optional after-school programming that fits in with its groundbreaking educational mission and standards. The halls of the LIC Arts Center swell every afternoon with children attending dance and theater classes, writing workshops, fine art and craft lessons, conversational French, and other programming choices that pull in both QPS students and those from the neighboring communities.
