Before/After school programs

Saint Joseph's recognizes that in today's busy world, parents may require care for their children that extends beyond the normal 8:05 AM - 3:10 PM school day. To that end, we offer a variety of programs, both before and after school, to provide a safe, caring environment for those students who need them. Our campus here in Boynton Beach is available beyond just the school’s regular operating hours.

before school program

For students who arrive before the school day begins at 7:30 AM, they are asked to spend their time with Mr. Aubrey in the Main Office for Early Care. Early Care begins at 7:00 AM each morning and costs eight dollars ($8) per day. Parents are billed monthly through FACTS.

Early Care provides a beneficial opportunity for students to participate in a variety of activities, such as:

  • Using this extra time to complete any unfinished work,

  • Reading their AR book to work towards achieving their goal for the quarter,

  • Taking AR tests after finishing an AR book the night before,

  • Using the computers for school-related purposes,

  • Interacting with their peers from all grade levels, and

  • Working with Mr. Aubrey individually on an assignment.

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS

AFTERCARE

The Aftercare program at Saint Joseph's Episcopal School allows students to participate in a safe, caring, and fun group that is carefully supervised from 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM Monday - Friday. This service is for all students who are not picked up at Dismissal or are not participating in a sports team or enrichment. The cost is $10 per hour; parents are billed at the end of each month through FACTS.

  • One hour (3:30 PM - 4:30 PM) of monitored homework time Monday – Thursday for students to work on:

    • AR reading and tests,

    • Class projects, and

    • Research using reference books.

  • One hour (4:30 PM - 5:30 PM) of free play, such as:

    • Reading books or magazines,

    • Activities on the playground,

    • Working on puzzles or games,

    • Coloring, and

    • Socialization.

PREPAID AFTERCARE

Students needing Aftercare every day may benefit from enrolling in the Prepaid Aftercare program. Students enrolled in the Prepaid Aftercare program receive all the same benefits as those participating in our regular Aftercare. Families pay a flat rate for each month, based on the number of days in that month; the daily rate is $10. By prepaying for each month on the first of that month, a savings of up to $10 per day can be realized.

For example: A month has 20 school days. A child attending Aftercare Monday - Friday, 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM, and enrolled in Prepaid Aftercare will pay $200 for the month. If that child has the same attendance, but is not enrolled in Prepaid Aftercare, the charge would be $400 for that month.

Saint Joseph's strives to provide a variety of enrichment programs to our students outside the classroom. All enrichments occur on a weekly basis from 3:15 PM - 4 :15 PM. Some of the activities scheduled after school include:
