Enrichment Program

Enrichment logo
The CBCS Enrichment Program seeks to broaden our students' experience by providing them with a variety of artistic, cultural and educational opportunities which expand upon the traditional academic program.  The Enrichment Program organizes and funds artist-in-residence programs, workshops, performances and after-school clubs.  These activities are open and free to all students.  The Enrichment Program is a non-profit organization which depends entirely upon support from donations and community grants.
