After School Program

The fee for the school year is $400 per month.

This fee is charged at the beginning of each month (through automatic credit card withdrawal). 

A deposit equivalent to the monthly fee is required at the time of registration to reserve the spot.  This deposit is applied to the fee for the last month of enrollment. (Deposit is not required when applying to be on the waitlist.  The deposit is due when being offered a spot in the program.)

We have simplified the registration process with a new “fillable” form that can be used with all our programs.  You can view and download it here:
