After-School Enrichment

NEW St. Catherine's Clubhouse for 2017-2018
St. Catherine's Clubhouse, formerly called After-School Enrichment, is available to girls in JK-grade 4 for the 2017-2018 school year. While the overall goal is largely the same — to allow girls to continue exploring, learning, and growing after the school bell — the format has been enhanced to provide families with a reliable schedule throughout the school year. We know that girls love choices, and by giving girls choices, they dive deeper into exploration that fuels future passions. 
 
2017-2018 Program Highlights:
  • Families can select Tuesdays, Thursdays, or both to span the entire school year. 
  • The Clubhouse will not be held on days when school is not in session, such as school holidays, conference days, or inclement weather closings.
  • The Clubhouse for girls in JK-grade 4 will run from dismissal through 6 p.m. Parents may pick up their daughters any time between 5-6 p.m. (special "choices" offerings will conclude by 5 p.m.)
  • The Clubhouse itinerary will include playtime and snacks followed by a variety of special "choices" for the girls that will rotate quarterly. In addition, girls may take advantage of study hall/quiet time to complete their homework. 
  • Special choices will span a variety of academic, artistic, and athletic interests — something for every girl!  
  • Parents with daughters in JK-grade 4 may choose Clubhouse participation with or without Extended Day enrollment (Note: separate enrollment contract for Extended Day after-school care.
  • Clubhouse spaces for 2017-2018 are limited and will be confirmed on a first-come, first-serve basis. 
  • St. Catherine's Clubhouse contracts for the 2017-2018 school year are due March 31, 2017.
  • St. Catherine's Clubhouse fees will be billed by the Business Office in accordance with a family's tuition bill payment schedule.
