Is there after school care available?

Our After School Program, headed by Mrs. Christine Psaradelis, is the benchmark for several programs throughout the city.  We offer supervised after school care for all children attending Catholic Academy and the fee is nominal.  Children are given quiet time to complete homework assignments, they may create crafts, play games or use the computers available to do research and write papers.  Our hours are from dismissal until 5:30pm.  We request that all families complete the after school registration form even if you have no intention of using our services.  In the event that a situation arises that your child needs care we have all of your emergency contact information and you may send your child at any time.  It costs absolutely nothing to register, you will only be charged on an as need basis.  For more information you may contact Mrs. Psaradelis, from 1:30 - 5:30p.m., at 716/885-8478.
