After School 2018-2019

Saint Saviour Catholic Academy offers an After School program open to all grade levels. Our program will begin on Monday, September 10th for grades 1 to 8, Wednesday, September 12th for Kindergarten and Monday, September 17th for Full Day Nursery and Pre-K.

Below provides a basic overview of the SSCA After School program. Registration materials and the more detailed information packet will be available at the beginning of the school year. Please be sure to familiarze yourself with the information packet when it is made available as more detailed policies and procedures will be highlighted. 

To accommodate the difference in dismissal times, parents/guardians with Nursery or Pre-K children as well as older children enrolled at our Academy will be given a 30-minute grace period (2:30 – 3:00 PM) to pick up their Nursery or Pre-K child. After 3:00 PM, regular After School rates will be incurred.

Children must be picked up by 6:00 PM. Please be on time! Parents will be billed $20 per every quarter hour (15 minutes) after 6:00pm.

Regular After School Schedule
At dismissal time, children are picked up from their classrooms by an After School teacher and taken to the classroom designated for their age group. Snack is served, followed by time for homework, recreation, and creative projects. Weather permitting, children will go to the Parish courtyard, on walks around the neighborhood, or to Prospect Park. 

Enrichment Classes
We offer a wide array of enrichment classes at an additional cost. Past classes have included: Chess, Silly Science, Origami, Creative Movement, Coding, and many more! The Fall Enrichment schedule and registration form will be available at the beginning of the school year. If a child is registered for an Enrichment class, they are escorted to their class at the appropriate start time. Please note enrollment for some classes is limited and is based on a first come first served basis.

Families may choose the coverage (regular After School, Enrichments or combination of the two) that works best for your child care needs and budget.

Monthly Payments:

  • After School fees are charged by the half hour: $5 Individual / $7.50 Family
  • You will be charged for a full half hour if your child stays for part of the next half hour cycle.
  • Monthly account invoices are due upon receipt and will be sent via email after the end of each month, since billing for monthly accounts is based on attendance. Your bill must be paid within two weeks after receiving the monthly invoice to avoid a late payment charge. Please pay promptly. Failure to pay on time will result in a $25 late payment fee.
  • In order to participate in the SSCA After School Program, you must be current with your payments. Accounts that fall behind may result in your childs dismissal from After School.

There is no hard deadline for choosing a prepayment option. Should you require time to figure out your schedule as the school year progresses, changes to your payment status can be made at the discretion of the After School Director.
