What to Know about PCH Afternoon Classes:

The Purchase Community House provides a drop-in center and afternoon classes for the children of Purchase and surrounding communities from mid-September through mid-May. To participate in the drop-in center or afternoon classes, an annual After School Program Membership fee must be paid. An Emergency Contact Form and Release Form is also required for each family. Those forms can now be submitted automatically while signing up for Membership online. Once the After School Program Membership fee is paid, the child's name is added to our sign-in list. Each child is required to sign in and out each day.

Exciting Afternoon Classes ranging from sports to crafts to cooking and more are offered in Fall, Winter and Spring Terms of 8 sessions each for an additional fee. Descriptions of the current term's classes are listed below. Registration for classes and drop-in is accepted in person at the Purchase Community House on or after the opening registration date for each term.

Parents are responsible for arranging their child's transportation to and from the Purchase Community House after school. J & R Tours offers a 24 passenger mini-bus to transport children from the Purchase School to the PCH for a fee. You can find more information about the bus here.

Fall 2014 Classes: NEW THIS FALL...


In addition to traditional PCH after school classes, we will be offering


hobby quest

Hobby Quest Aviators - Grades K-5

When: Tuesday 3:45-4:30

Fee: $100 for 8 sessions


Time to take off! - build, fly and take home your very own furious flying machines!


Take an exciting trip into the world of aviation as you build your very own aircraft and watch them soar overhead. This innovative program is an engaging and exciting foray into the world of aviation, and with a divers array of models to build and take home each class will leave you flying high like your airplanes. We'll tackle a few large models such as the UFO. This unusual looking plane sports a wind-up propeller and its round wings resemble a flying saucer. But don't be fooled - it's capable of taking off straight from the ground just like the big jets. And to prove a great plane doesn't always need a propeller we'll also build the SHREK 2, a classic all-wooden glider. This plane is great for performing loops and stunt tricks and launches with its own special slingshot. We'll also explore the world of motorized craft with THE DRAGONFLY. Featuring an electric motor and a wide wing span, this plane is great for long flights on windy fall days.


With these and so many more exciting models to build you'll be busy flying outside all autumn long. If fact, you may catch yourself saying "It's a bird, it's a plane, it's...No wait, it's my airplane.
