The Covenant Experience

After-School Care


Covenant Club is a structured, enriching, after-school program for Lower School students in Pre-K through Grade 6. After dismissal from school, students enrolled in the program are given a nutritious snack, and may enjoy free time or have the opportunity to work on homework assignments. Students have the option to participate in arts and crafts, games, or various other activities, both indoors and outdoors. Covenant Club is open until 5:30 p.m. daily for your convenience and accounts will be charged only for the days your child attends. Additional enrichment options are available for a fee - if you would like to register your child or learn more, please see the event below. 


Many Upper School students stay after school for athletic practices and competitions. Other students remain after dismissal to study and wait for parent pick up. All Upper School wings, including student lounges, close at 4:00 p.m. Those waiting to be picked up after 4:00 p.m. will go to a supervised study hall area that is open until 6:00 p.m. Parents’ accounts will be charged daily for this service.
