After School Program

The Calvary Christian School After School Program is offered to enrolled students in Transitional Kindergarten through eighth grade. There are 3 eight-week sessions during the school year. Classes will be offered Monday through Friday.  ASP runs from 3:00 to 4:30 pm, and a snack is provided. A variety of classes are offered including sports, homework clubs, Accelerated Reader, performing arts and technology programs, chess, Lego robotics, and more! 

Classes are an hour long, with carpool beginning at 4:15 and ending at 4:30.
Your child will be given a light snack after school going to class.
You can pick up your child in the preschool parking lot beginning at 4:15.
Most classes are $200 per child.

Please contact Bradley Rapo with any questions.


Cougar Club is now offered Monday through Friday!

Cougar Club is offered as a flexible after-school program. Cougar Club provides after-school care Monday through Friday until 4:30 in the ARC. This is the perfect opportunity for children to do homework and have some extra study time on an as-needed basis. Please note, there will be adult supervision and some homework help, but tutoring services will not be provided during Cougar Club.  Younger children and older children will be in designated areas to allow for study time and play time in age-appropriate ways. You can buy a Cougar Club Pass for each trimester or for the full year and have your children attend as needed. A full-year pass will be $425/per child and a single-trimester pass will be $175/child. We hope this eases the afternoon schedule for working parents and those who have children participating in different activities.
