Extended Day Programs

Our mission to serve children and families extends beyond the regular school day. Our programs are essential components of the support and service we extend to the families of St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s in the hopes of making their lives easier and our students happier, healthier, more knowledgeable, and inspired.

Extended Day Programs consist of three distinct programs: 

  • After School
  • Enrichment and Dynamic Athletics
  • Music Lesson Packages
  • After School

    The mission of the After School is to serve children and families whose needs extend beyond the regular school day, bridging the gap between school and home. Our dedicated After School counselors provide caring supervision and facilitate activities, nutritious snacks, and playtime. For students in first grade and up, structured homework support is an added component of the program. 

    Any child currently enrolled nursery or older can utilize the After School program; registration in advance is not required. After School is available post dismissal (2:50 p.m. on, depending upon grade level) until 6:30 p.m., and students may join on any day, before and after Enrichment Courses or Music Lessons.

    The cost for After School participation is $9 per half hour; financial aid is available. Families will be billed by the business office.

    Full Day options are also available on certain days when there are no classes:

    • Orientation
    • Parent Conferences, twice a year
    • Christmas Pageant
    • Faculty Professional Development

    Enrichment and Dynamic Athletics

    Enrichment and Dynamic Athletics classes take place after regular school hours, and they offer our students the opportunity to try something new, pursue their interests, and develop their talents further. Our classes are creative, educational, and fun extensions of the school day and allow children to expand their circle of friends by working and playing with students in other classes. Members of our own faculty, as well as teachers and coaches from other organizations in the city, comprise our dedicated team of instructors.
