Optional Extended Afternoons

Parents may choose to have their child stay until 2:30pm for either 2, 3, or 4 days per week.  Since children change so rapidly during their first year of school, the extended day option will be offered in two semesters which gives parents flexibility to add, subtract or keep the same number of extended days.  Costs are based on the number of extended days per week selected:

  • Fall semester:  $900/2 days – $1,300/3 days – $1,800/4 days
  • Spring semester:  $1,500/2 days – $2,500/3 days – $3,000/4 days


We will accept applications for fall 2018 entrance beginning in early September.
