Williamsburg ACT II program is an extension of the school day and offers additional elective classes from 2:30-4:00p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. ACT II classes are semester classes (September to January and January to June).These classes operate just like those that fall within the regular school hours: attendance to class is mandatory, class work is graded and grades appear on the report cards. Please do not sign up your child if he or she has other commitments on Tuesdays and Thursdays If your child plans to participate in the interscholastic sports program, games and practices are held Monday through Thursday and will conflict with the ACT II program. Students can not participate in ACT II and a sport in the same semester. They need to make a choice.
