The McGillis AfterSchool Program is a thriving environment that encourages social, creative, and academic growth in a post-school day setting. Our goal is to facilitate and support an environment that allows students to explore and grow beyond the classroom through exciting programing and authentic care for children.
Our AfterSchool Program is available for students Kindergarten through 8th grade, Monday through Friday, from 2:45 P.M. - 6:00 P.M. Following the regular school day, participating students check in with AfterSchool Staff in the Dining Hall where they join their grade level group for the afternoon. Once grouped, students get a snack, head outside to play, or get ready to attend enrichment opportunities or afterschool foreign language classes. Those who choose to stay in the program for general activity time will take part in supervised homework time, independent reading time, indoor/outdoor games and art/craft projects.
COST/CHECK OUT POLICY
The cost is $8 per hour(billed at $2 per 15 minute increment). Billing time for lower school students begins at 3:30 P.M. & 4:00 P.M. for middle school students. Beyond these times your child will only be billed for the time they are signed into the program. Billing for the program is done on a monthly basis. Only authorized adults listed on our registration may check children out of the program. We require an email or phone call if someone other than an authorized adult is picking up your child.

In addition to our basic AfterSchool program, a selection of Enrichment classes are assembled twice a year (once at the beginning of the school year and once after the new year). These exploratory classes are intended to spark curiosity, ignite creativity, and reinforce passions in visual/performing arts, S.T.E.M. and Outdoor Education. Students are picked up and dropped off by instructors in the Dining Hall . If students are not picked up by an authorized adult following class, they will be signed back into the AfterSchool Program.
