BASA Enrichment Classes
In addition to our regular before & after school care, we offer supplemental classes to all students. All classes are held at Ravenswood. Students do not have to be enrolled in BASA to attend supplemental classes. However, apart from the Columbia College arts programming, most classes do have fees. You can learn more and register here.
Spanish Classes, Mondays
Led by Instituto Cervantes, this is a Spanish immersion and enrichment program. Students will learn and practice their Spanish speaking skills through guided recreational play, speaking and listening activities, arts and crafts, and storytelling. Activities will be conducted in Spanish and will be planned to correspond with school themes and holidays.
Students develop self-confidence, character, leadership, and fitness. Students learn Taekwondo in an environment of mutual support, respect, and community. Kids have fun while developing focus, strength, character, and respect for self and others.
