Welcome to the spring after-school schedule at Simon Baruch! Registration for this session will open on Monday, March 13, and the new schedule starts on Monday, March 20. For information on which new classes we're offering as well as sports information, please read on:

Top Chef

In this interactive class, students will learn to apply their cooking skills in a fast-paced, competitive environment. Different teams will take every day recipes and make them their own by adding their own flair and flavor to favorite dishes. At the end the year, a panel of judges will rate these dishes in a cook-off event for friends and families.  

Double Dutch

In this new Baruch sport, students will learn basic Double Dutch skills like how to turn the rope, jump in and out of it, and basic jumping patterns. The team will then advance to learning Double Dutch tricks, chants, and different speed levels as they prepare for a showcase or competition. 

Creative Writing/Storytelling

Students will unleash their inner artist with this class that allows them to tap into their inner storyteller and poet. They will hone creative writing skills like character development and story design as they create their own short stories or spoken word poems to present.

Think Elephants

In partnership with Think Elephants International, an international animal rights organization, student conservationists will learn how elephants live and breed in the wild. For the finished project, the class will create a project focused on conservation or animal welfare.

Architecture and Design

This drawing class will take place mostly outside as students walk to a location, learn about its architecture, and sketch it. Students will expand their drawing skills and architectural knowledge.

Shaolin Kung fu

We are thrilled to partner with the New York Chinese Cultural Center to bring this most traditional form of Chinese martial arts to after-school! Under the tutelage of a Kung fu Master, students will advance through the forms of Kung fu as they learn discipline and self-control.


In this introductory language class, students will learn the basics of the Spanish alphabet and common words, eventually working up to sentence structure. The class will work towards students pairing off and having a simple conversation in Spanish.


Sports Tryouts

ALL Baseball tryouts (JV and Varsity): Tuesday March 7, 3pm with callbacks Wednesday March 8

Softball: Monday March 6, 3pm with callbacks Thursday March 9, 3pm

Expectations: This year, Track and Field will not hold tryouts but will take the first 60 students who register. Practice is three days a week: Tuesday, Wednesdays and Fridays. All students on the team are expected to attend a minimum of two days a week. If a student misses more than two days unexcused, they will be cut from the team. Students who cannot commit to the double session should not attend.
