  After School Program

Holy Name of Jesus School has an After School Program for our school students!

The purpose of the After School Program is to provide quality childcare in a safe and nurturing environment. Activities are geared toward social skills, homework help, recreation and physical activities, and Christian character development. Consistent with the mission of the school, this after school service represents a community in which staff and children grow together as a faith community in an atmosphere that fosters love and respect for each person. Parents who work can be assured that their children will continue their after school hours in a Christian atmosphere consistent with their school days.

Explanation of Days-In-Session/Not-In-Session

The After School Program provides services from 3:30pm until 6:00 pm. The program offers services ONLY on the days Holy Name of Jesus School is open for scheduled FULL days. Services will not be provided on half days, holidays, early dismissals, or any other day Holy Name of Jesus needs to close before 3:00 pm. Note: If school is in session, there will be no After School Program on the Wednesday before the Thanksgiving holiday.



The tuition for the program will be determined each year during the registration period. The After School Program charges a $50.00 registration fee. This is a one-time per family, non-refundable fee. The fee will need to be repaid if a family withdraws a child and wants to re-register.

Program space is provided on a first-come first-serve basis each year. The program has a limited enrollment. A waiting list will be maintained for the current school year only.

The Fee Schedule for the After School Program is:

First Child: $10.00 per day (e.g. $50.00-per week, $100.00-two weeks, $200.00-per month, etc.)

Each additional child: $8.00 per day (e.g. for 2 children $90.00-per week, $180.00-two weeks, $360.00-per month)

There are no refunds for absences. Enrollment must be full time. Payments may be made monthly (by the 1st of the month), biweekly (by the 15th of the month), or weekly, but must always remain current. The first payment will be due on September 1 and the last payment will be May 1. Payments may be made by cash, check, or credit card. All checks should be made out to Holy Name of Jesus and sent to the school office in an envelope marked "After School Program".

Payment is considered past due after three (3) school days beyond the payment due date. The After School Program reserves the right to terminate services after 30 days of nonpayment or repeated late payments for the services rendered.

The After School Program charges a $20.00 fee for any check returned for insufficient funds. Any other charges incurred by the program due to a return check will be added to the parent’s account.


Late Pickup Fee

There is a late pickup fee of $1.00 per minute after 6:00 pm. The late fee is collected at that time. Consistent lateness and failure or refusal to pay the late fees may result in the removal of the child from the program.



All students will pay to attend full time, although full time attendance is not mandatory. On each day that your child is not in attendance, the After School Program staff must be notified. For the safety of your child, we must know that he/she is not with us; he/she is safely in your care or at another activity. This rule will be strictly enforced. If your child is absent from school for the day, the Health Room Staff will notify us.


Please write a note addressed to "After School Program" and send it to your child’s homeroom teacher if:

your child leaves early due to illness or appointment;

your child simply will not be attending that day;

your child has another after-school activity such as football or majorettes;

we need to release your child to attend an activity and will attend the After School Program late.

We will take attendance at the start of each after-school day and need to account for each student.

Child Pickup
