Extended Day Programs
Princeton Academy provides Extended Day Programs and classes for students in Kindergarten through Grade 8 every weekday.
Extended Day Programs are coordinated by LS Lead Classroom Teacher Vince Geraci. Programs are open to all students and are held on all full school days. Extended Day Programs are divided into three trimesters which cover the entire school year. Parents will have the opportunity to enroll in the fall, winter and spring.
The fall trimester begins on September 4 and ends on December 19. Please note that Extended Day Classes for the fall trimester end on November 26 (Thanksgiving Break). There are no classes between Thanksgiving and Christmas. After School Care will operate normally until Christmas Break. If your child is enrolled in classes for the fall trimester, he may attend regular After School Care between Thanksgiving and Christmas Break, at no additional charge.
The winter trimester starts on January 6 and ends on March 13 (Spring Break).
The spring trimester starts on April 30 and ends on June 5. Early morning drop-off on June 8 will operate normally, however, there are no Extended Day Classes or After School Care on June 8, as this day is a half day of school (Prize Day).
MONDAY - FRIDAY
Supervised time in the library. Please bring your son to the library.
Before School Care is available from 7:00-7:45 a.m. Students must be enrolled in advance, however, drop-ins will be accepted if unforeseen circumstances arise. The charge for a one-day drop-in is $10. Drop-in billing will be mailed at the end of each month.
MONDAY - FRIDAY
After School Care will consist of supervised, structured and unstructured playtime. Snack will be provided. Following dismissal, students will be sent to the cafeteria.
After School Care hours are 3:00-6:00 p.m. and is primarily for students enrolled in advance, however, drop-ins are welcome and will be billed on a day-to-day basis. Since we are concerned about the proper supervision of students after regular dismissal, any child who has not been picked up by 3:20 p.m. will be sent to the After School Care and the family will be billed at the rate of $15 for the first hour. If your son remains in After School Care beyond 4:20 p.m., you will be charged a drop-in fee of $30. Drop-in billing will be mailed at the beginning of each month.
Princeton Academy offers Extended Day Classes to students in Kindergarten through Grade 8. Classes meet 3:30-4:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Students may be enrolled in one class per day. Drop-ins are not permitted for Extended Day Classes. Fall Extended Day Classes will begin on September 4, 2019. Please see the list of class offerings below.
Lower School Study Hall carries the same fee as an after school class and will be held 3:30-4:30 p.m. Lower School students who are not signed up for this class in advance, will not be permitted to use the library after school. Students are expected to respect the space as a quiet location for individual study and recreational reading.
For all students enrolled in After School Care and for those using After School Care "drop-in," there will be a $50 late pick-up fee for students picked up after 6:00 until 6:15 p.m. After 6:15 p.m. there will be a $1 per minute additional charge. “Drop-ins” are not permitted in Extended Day Classes.
Any student enrolled in Extended Day Classes may attend regular After Care when the class ends until 6:00 p.m. at no additional charge on those days only.
