School Life

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. Most classes are $250 per child. You can pick up your child in the Preschool parking lot beginning at 4:15.

Please contact Shay Talboys with any questions.



 

Cougar Club is offered Monday through Friday!

Cougar Club is offered as a flexible after-school program for TK-8th Grade students. Cougar Club provides after-school care Monday through Friday until 5:00. 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 for $550 per child, or for the full year for $1500. We hope this eases the afternoon schedule for working parents and those who have children participating in different activities.
