Valley Academy has programs available for:
K-8th grade Students (Coyote Club) New! Available to Preschool in 2017-2018
Kindergarten Students (All Day Kindergarten)
1st and 2nd Grade Students (Academic Arcade)
School schedules do not always fit adult work schedules. For parents in need of extra assistance at the beginning or end of the school day, Coyote Club, a before and after school program, is available. Here students have a chance to finish homework assignments, giving families more free time at the end of a busy day. After completion of homework assignments, students may play games and participate in activities that are academic in nature. Coyote Club is a service open to students in kindergarten through 8th grade. Beginning in August, 2017, preschoolers may also attend. Care is offered before school from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. and after school from 3:15 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. Sessions are also available on most Early Release days.
For the 2016-2017 school year, morning sessions cost a daily flat rate of $3.50. Afternoon sessions cost $5.00 per hour. For families with more than one child, a 20% sibling discount is applied to the fees of the oldest child. A $40 registration fee applies to the first child, and $20 for each sibling. Coyote Club fees may be adjusted for the 2017-2018 school year. For more information about Coyote Club, please contact the school office at (623) 516-7747 or email us:
You may also refer to the Coyote Club Handbook, which includes registration forms.
ALL DAY KINDERGARTEN
The school day for students in kindergarten ends at 11:05 a.m. Families interested in an extended day for their kindergarten child may take advantage of the full day kindergarten program. This enables students to remain on campus for the entire school day while enhancing their education with thematically based units of literature, science, social studies, art, music, and P.E. Full day kindergarten runs from 8:00 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.
Tuition for full day kindergarten is collected in ten equal installments of $200 each, with a one-time registration fee of $40. Students are registered through the school office.
Students in first and second grade are released from school at 2:15 p.m. Grades 3 – 8 are dismissed at 3:15 p.m. First and second grade students may extend their school day for one hour with the Academic Arcade. The Arcade offers a relaxed, less structured atmosphere where learning continues in a more casual environment. Students rotate through crafts, story times, and thematic activities. Structured outdoor activities are also scheduled, giving young students a chance to burn off excess energy. Academic Arcade is open to students in first and second grades.
The current fee for this program is $35 each month of the ten-month school year, with a $40 one-time registration fee. Fees may be adjusted for the 2017-2018 school year. If your child is enrolled in Valley Academy and you would like to enroll in this program, please complete the forms below.
