Primary extracurricular program

Welcome to pep

At the American Nicaraguan School, we’re dedicated to extending learning beyond conventional boundaries, offering our students a platform to explore, create, and lead. The Primary Extracurricular Program (PEP) embodies this ethos, providing a spectrum of after-school opportunities that venture outside the athletic domain and into the realms of innovation and creativity.

PEP offers a structured yet flexible environment where students can pursue their interests across various disciplines. From robotics and Italian to entrepreneurship, writing, and cultural dancing, PEP activities are designed to engage students as active participants in their learning, fostering both personal growth and leadership skills.

Key Benefits of PEP:

  • Explore diverse interests in a nurturing and inspiring setting.
  • Develop leadership and collaborative skills through interactive, student-centered activities.
  • Apply learning in meaningful ways, reinforcing the ANS commitment to academic excellence.

PEP isn’t just an extracurricular activity; it’s an integral part of our mission to cultivate versatile, globally-minded individuals. By dedicating time each Wednesday to these pursuits, we ensure that our students have the opportunity to enhance their talents, discover new passions, and prepare for a bright future.

Embrace the opportunity to grow, innovate, and lead with PEP at ANS. Join us on Wednesdays from 2:40 to 3:30 pm and be a part of something extraordinary!
