Out-of-School Time (OST) Program

The Belair-Edison School is committed to students’ overall development. We offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities, including an after school program that provides students with an opportunity to engage in activities (athletic, artistic, intellectual) that enrich their everyday middle school experience. Moreover, these activities promote students' personal development by giving them a chance to gain skills in a particular area (theater, dance, martial arts, etc.) while building valuable social and peer interaction skills.

The Belair-Edison School Out-of-School Time (OST) Program is run by Afya Baltimore Inc. (ABI), made possible through funding from the Maryland State Department of Education and is free to students. This year, due the COVID-19 pandemic, our program will be virtual.
