Director of Auxiliary Programs, Mr. Katinas, updates the community on Aidan's After School and Discovery Programs.
Discovery is Aidan's after school enrichment program. Taught by Aidan staff and outside vendors, classes are offered three times a year in the fall, winter and spring. We offer classes in the arts, athletics, technology and language. There is an additional fee, with reduced rates for children already enrolled in the After School Program.
Looking for some additional enrichment opportunities for your child? While Aidan will not be offering on-campus Discovery classes this fall, here are some great alternative classes and activities.
While Spring Discovery may be cancelled, a few of our Discovery teachers still have some virtual options that families may try.
Phillip Katinas joined Aidan in 2018 and currently serves as the Director of Auxiliary Services. Phillip’s work in education began at the Sheridan School in DC, where he served as camp teacher at their Creative Arts and Summer Adventure Camp (CASA) while home from college during the summer. After several years as camp teacher, Phillip accepted a full-time role as the Program Manager for CASA and was ultimately promoted to the Assistant Director of Auxiliary Programs at Sheridan. As Sheridan's Assistant Director of Auxiliary Programs, Philip oversaw all after school and summer programs and brings a wealth of knowledge to his role at Aidan. In addition to managing Aidan's After School (ASP), Discovery, and Summer Programs, Phillip also teaches PE to the Elementary and Primary students.
Phillip and his family are DC-natives and all still reside in the area. Phillip loves playing sports, especially ice hockey. He also enjoys exploring the great outdoors, biking, camping, and hiking. Philip spends his free time training his two Newfoundland dogs, who not only love to swim but are water-rescue certified.
