After School Program
As a school that is rooted in community, Convent & Stuart Hall’s After School Program (ASP) serves K-8 families and the student experience by providing supplemental programming until 6:00 p.m. To that end, ASP offers three primary services: general after school care and supervision; ASP Specialty Classes; and, private or paired music lessons through our Music Conservatory.
ASP facilitates a combination of free choice activities and structured play, including free play on outdoor playgrounds and courts, imaginative play and reading in the Hoffman Learning Commons and design and tinkering in the Unkefer Spark Studio.
ASP Class Registration opens Friday, September 1 at 12 p.m. **ASP Class Catalog & Music Conservatory Registration will be sent to parents via email when all program information is available.**

ASP is open every day that school is open until 6:00 p.m. On early dismissal days, ASP is open from the time of the early dismissal until 6:00 p.m. Please note that pick-ups after 6:00 p.m. will result in a late fee of $1 per minute. Repeated late pick-ups may result in dismissal from the program. Should this happen, refunds will not be issued.
ASP Specialty Classes are scheduled over the course of two 12-week sessions (fall and spring) and are filled on a first come, first served basis. The fees for the classes cover the supervision of students before and after the scheduled class times (should you decide to have your student stay in ASP after class is dismissed). ASP is a coed environment and Specialty Classes are no different. Classes are typically grouped either by grade or by grade range (i.e. K-grade 1 and grades 2-4). Classes run with a minimum of five students and are capped at a maximum of 20 students. Recent Specialty Class offerings include capoeira, musical theater and dance, Code Ninjas computer programming, sewing and farm to table (gardening and cooking). All Specialty Class information will be emailed directly to parents during the registration periods.
The Convent & Stuart Hall Music Conservatory offers students the opportunity for in-depth study of a musical instrument after school. Professional musicians offer instruction in piano, guitar and violin, working with students in private or partner lessons. The culmination and highpoint of the year is a celebratory recital for parents and friends. As a convenience to parents (and for the safety of the children), ASP supervision is included in the cost of lessons. All Music Conservatory information will be emailed directly to parents during the registration periods.
When you arrive for pick-up, please proceed to the Broadway pick-up line just as you would for normal school pick-up. Please seek out an ASP staff member and let them know that you are here to pick up your child. Keep in mind that ASP is a very dynamic program and it may take several minutes for students to grab their bags, get up the stairs and get into the car. If all goes well, you should not have to get out of your car and your child should be up within minutes.
For all ASP/Music Conservatory pick-ups that take place before 4:00 p.m., parents/guardians are asked to park in the neighborhood and pick up in person. There cannot be any ASP/Music Conservatory pick-ups using the Broadway pick-up line before 4:00 p.m.
ASP billing is based on a $30-per-day fee (LF) and $25-per-day fee (MF). Families may sign up for daily or weekly plans and are able to drop-in to ASP as needed. ASP days are not “banked”; if you do not use your ASP day(s) on a given week, you can not roll that day over to the next week. Plans are based on weekly attendance and, therefore, it is more of a “use it or lose it” system.
