FCA "Share the Story": After School Program

ADMISSION FOR AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM

 

ABOUT AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM (ASP)

Biblically-based, Academically Enriched -- and Fun!

Offering your child the opportunity to have a safe place to spend time before and after school.

 

For Elementary and Middle School students, extended care is offered from 7 am before school and in the afternoon until 6 pm for a small additional monthly fee. 

 

From August through May, our Afterschool Program bolsters the education our students receive during class time through help with homework and a myriad of extra learning activities. 

 

We offer children the chance to have fun and feel at home in the afternoon hours. Your child(ren) will look forward to participating in a variety of comprehensive activities that help them become independent in completing their school work, that provide physical activity, and that constructively channel their energy in the after-school hours.

 

Our students have access to the library, to the gym, and to other school resources. In addition, we provide our students with a nutritious supper. 

 

On school holidays, we coordinate field trips and extended activities for our students to include culturally enriching excursions or those that are designed just for fun. Examples include a day at the State Fair, exploring the ice sculpture at the Gaylord, enjoying the Dallas aquarium, a day trip to a local museum, or a day roller skating and enjoying the park.
