EXTENDED DAY AT STA
St. Thomas the Apostle offers both before and after school care for STA students in Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade.
NOTE: STA will have AM Care and PM Care available for families who need it for the 2020-21 school year. However, we ask that families work to arrange their schedules so that attendance can be avoided. Due to COVID-19, the Extended Day program will be different. There will no longer be homework help from teachers or enrichment activities. The cost for all students will be $2.50/every 15 minutes a student attends.
Morning Care is available between 7:00 am and 7:45 am and is held in the Pre-Kindergarten classrooms and the gym. It is supervised by STA faculty members. Cost: $2.50/every 15 minutes a student attends.
Extended Day & After School Care
STA offers an Extended Day Program and After School Care to families. Please read the details of each below. The Extended Day Program will be less expensive for families who regularly pick up their child later in the day. Families can still participate in after-school programming and sign up for this program. In addition, families can apply Action for Children money to pay for this program.
More detailed information can be obtained by contacting the school office at 773-667-1142.
