Choir School of Delaware opens enrollment for after-school program

The Choir School of Delaware wants to enroll 50 students this month for its in-person after-school program starting this spring.

The Choir School of Delaware is welcoming students back to its after-school program.



After being shut down by the coronavirus pandemic, The Choir School of Delaware is ramping up in-person activities again. 


The school’s year-round after-school program serves students ages 7 to 17 in the Wilmington area who love music and want to improve academically.


“The program offers superior choral training, voice lessons and piano lessons as well for our students," said Arreon Harley-Emerson, the director of music and operations at the Choir School. "And on top of that we offer academic support - that takes the form of tutoring, one-on-one mentoring and SAT prep.”  


Harley-Emerson says the school is looking to enroll 50 students this month for the in-person program that starts this spring. 


He notes there is a hybrid option as well.


“If there are some folks who are still not quite yet ready to be in-person, we are going to have a hybrid version of the program for some time, until everyone is comfortable with being together in-person,” said Harley-Emerson. 


Harley-Emerson notes the cost is $400 per year, with financial aid and scholarships available.
