Afterschool: This out-of-school-time program is for middle school students who are too cool for after-school programs but whose parents don't like the idea of their young teen being home alone every day. The emphasis is on productive use of leisure time. Participants will be exposed to recreational activities in the essential areas: Community Service, Sports and Fitness, Cultural Arts, and life skills. There will be 'Cerebral Stations' for those who want to keep their grades up and 'Service Crews' for those seeking to fulfill their community service hours. Parents will have the option to pay the entire fee upon registration. Payment plans are available: $180 due upon registration and on 10/1/14, 1/1/15 & 3/1/15.
