Afterschool Programs

Tiger Academy
Welcome to Sunset Primary's after school Tiger Academy where our staff provides quality reading and math support for identified students. Students are invited to participate in this program that offers alternative instructional strategies in a fun and nurturing atmosphere. Three to four sessions are offered each year, each focusing on a specific grade level.  After a short snack time students receive individualized instruction designed and provided by certificated teachers and supported by trained para professionals. We strive to maintain a 1:2 instructor to student ratio whenever possible to foster strong connections between our students and Sunset Primary staff members. Bus transportation home is offered to all students within the Sunset service area. Please feel free to contact our office with any questions at 253-566-5640.
