Clubs and Athletics

Clubs provide a variety of after school activities that promotes curiosity, sparks thought, and captivates the imagination of our students.

Afterschool Programs


What is E-day at ECS?

E-Day, the tuition-based after school program at ECS,  provides a safe and fun environment for students to play, study, and engage while parents finish up their workdays. With programs at both the upper and lower schools, serving students K- 5th grade, E-Day is dedicated to reflecting the school’s mission by following the standards and goals established at ECS. 

As school dismisses and E-Day begins, students transition to after school where they eat snack and socialize. From there, daily activities include outdoor free time and nature hikes, games and puzzles, arts and crafts, cooking and tech time, and a focus on reading. In addition, E-Day offers a daily homework lab to get a head start on nightly assignments. The students also enjoy enrichment programming from community organizations such as the Sierra Club, Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, and Carnegie Library.
