Welcome, Students & Parents/Guardians!

The Lake Braddock Middle School After-School Program offers a wide variety of clubs, activities and events for students including both recreational and academic enrichment options. The program emphasizes the development and enhancement of student social and life skills through the positive support of after-school staff and intentional programming efforts. The middle school after-school program encompasses all students staying after normal school hours at Lake Braddock – this includes those staying for club involvement, extracurricular participation or academic intervention.

After school clubs and activities are funded through a grant from the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. The program is free although there may be nominal fees (<$50) associated with certain clubs that compete or have material costs. These fees are associated with less than 10% of the activities we offer.

The After-School Program also receives critical funding through Army Youth Program in Your Neighborhood (AYPYN). In order to continue this relationship, we must document the number of U.S. Army Youth in our program each year. If either parent/guardian is serving in the U.S. Army as Army Active Duty, activated Army Reserve or activated National Guard please fill out this quick form.  Thank you for your service and cooperation.

General Information

The ‘Bruins Stay After’ Middle School After-School program is gearing up to be an exciting option for 7th and 8th grade students for the 2021-2022 schoolyear. Lake Braddock and Jamaal Hines, the LBMS After-School Specialist, are working around the clock to update our After-School Clubs and Activities Calendar for Fall 2021. Parents must complete the registration form in order for students to participate in the program.

The program is scheduled to begin at the beginning of September 2021. Students will have the chance to explore a number of extracurricular  activities (such as sports, fitness, arts/crafts, performing arts, bingo/trivia, video games and more) as well as a handful of after-school clubs (such as FBLA, Science Olympiad, Math Counts, MS Drama Club and more).

The MS After-School Program will run Monday – Friday from 3:00p – 4:45p; daily activities and clubs offerings will vary based on student interests. We will be offering late bus transportation on Monday’s, Tuesday’s and Thursday’s. For more information on late bus schedule, please contact Lance Jackson, Subschool 2 Assistant Principal.

We are so excited to be back in-person at Lake Braddock Secondary School and we are continuously searching for ways to better connect with our middle school students. Please have students complete the student interest form so that we have a better idea of the types of programs/activities that our students are most interested in.

Check back often for updates and be sure to visit our Bruins Stay Virtual after-school site for updates and announcements.
