Activities

Bike Repair Club & Open Shop

bikeshop

Students will be able to use the open shop time by scheduling it in advance for after school or by coming during one of the monthly scheduled open shop times where skills will also be taught. Students will have the opportunity to learn a range of skills from basic maintenance to performing overhauls.

The shop will also be staffed by our Lead Teacher, Max Clark-Vail, who has 10+ years of experience as a professional bicycle mechanic. We are able to offer the bike shop through our partnering with and receiving donations from The Hub Bike Co-op, Park Tool, and Quality Bike Components.

Video Game Club
Video Game Club at AFA is a club that was started and organized by students. The club continues and is organized and run by student volunteers. Video Game club offers a chance for students to come together to share their favorite video games with each other or a chance to compete against each other in multiplayer formats. In the past the video game club has taken a field trip to a retro style arcade, asked for donations of video game equipment and provided entertainment prior to family fun nights. This student led organization typically meets a couple times a month after school.
