Extended Day 

We're committed to supporting parents, helping to balance work and family.

That's why we offer the After-school Program for our Lower School students. The program offers supervised recreation and quiet study, as well as nutritious afternoon snacks. Grades 3 and 4 students participate in a 30-minute supervised, quiet homework session, as well. This service is available in the EDC room:

  • Monday through Thursday, from 3 to 6 p.m.
  • Friday, from 3 to 5:30 p.m.

The After-school Program is $8 per hour until closing time. A late-fee of $1 per minute past closing time will be charged. These monetary totals will be calculated on a monthly basis and turned into the Canterbury School Business Office.
