CARE Academy


CARE Academy is an out-of-school time program available to elementary school-age children (grades K-5) who are currently enrolled as students in schools where the program is offered. The program provides a safe and stimulating place for school-age children before and after school with the goal to be more like than home than school. Children spend many hours at school and need a place to relax, rest and stretch their bodies as well as their minds when they're not in the classroom. CARE Academy provides a variety of educational and recreational activities for the children to enjoy.
These activities include:

  • Homework help/academic assistance and educational games
  • Physical activity, including a variety of sports and age-appropriate games
  • Enrichment activities ranging from arts & crafts to music
  • Free time for children to pursue their favorite interests 
Hours during the School Year: 6:45 am to the start of school and from class dismissal to 6:00 pm
