St. Stephen's offers two types of after school programs for its students: Extended Aftercare Services and Enrichment Programs. The After School Program is committed to ensuring the social, recreational, and academic growth of its students by providing a safe, positive, and nurturing environment where students can thrive in every activity. The safety and well-being of the students are of foremost concern. There is an off-duty police officer on campus until the last student leaves. The After School Program begins immediately after school and runs until 6:00 PM on every full day of school.
In After School Enrichment classes, students have the opportunity to explore and develop a variety of new interests such as art, robotics, cooking, archery, sports, and more. In each session, there is the opportunity to choose a class that will introduce your child to a new experience. All classes are presented in a fun and skill-building environment.
Enrichment classes are offered in two sessions during the school year, Fall which runs September through December and Winter/Spring which runs January through May. A description of Enrichment Classes and registration is available online on the school website at www.sseds.org. All registration and payment are done online.
Aftercare is designed to be a convenient and helpful service to our parents. Students in Aftercare have time for supervised free indoor/outdoor play as well as time to work on homework.
