After School Care & Clubs

Related Content

Our after school program is based on a club model. Every student, from preschool – 8th grade, enrolled in our after school program will participate in a club. Clubs are designed to engage students and expose them to a wide range of extracurricular experiences. Each club session runs for approximately 2 months, and different clubs are offered each day of the week. Clubs are dismissed at 4:15pm for PK-grade 2 students and 4:30pm for grades 3-8.

Families who are using the after school program to meet a childcare need should register their child(ren) for the year on the days of the week that they need care. Once we have filled all of the club seats with the families that need care, we open all of the remaining seats to families who do not need care, but who are seeking high-quality extracurricular experiences for their children. Families in the second group will be notified of opportunities to enroll for specific clubs throughout the year.

Our clubs + after care programs allow students to stay at school until 6:00pm. Registration is required and is based on a monthly fee. You may select the days of the  week you wish to register. For example, you may register your child 5 days a week, only on Mondays and Wednesday, or the combination of weekdays that works for your family.  Fees will be billed with your tuition payments.
