After School Program (K-8)

The hours after school is known to be a high-risk time for delinquent behavior. Our after-school program provides a consistent schedule, homework assistance, quiet and active treatment. Our quality program allows children the ability to socialize with their peers in an environment that is supervised but less structured than the normal school day. We provide a variety of structured yet flexible learning and active treatment experiences. We offer an afternoon snack, homework assistance and stimulating educational and physical activities, small group activities, games, arts and crafts and outdoor play {weather permitting). After school care is available until 7:00 p.m.
