Before & After School Programs
Valley Academy has programs available for:
1st and 2nd Grade Students
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 all grades. It is available before school from 6:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. school days. The afternoon session runs from 3:15 p.m., when school is dismissed, to 6:15 p.m. Sessions are also available on Early Release days. Morning sessions cost a daily flat rate of $3.50. Afternoon sessions cost $5.00/hour. For more information about Coyote Club, please contact the school office at (623) 516-7747 or email us. You may also view the Coyote Club Handbook, which includes enrollment forms, here.
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 nine equal installments of $225 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 1st and 2nd grades. The current fee for this program is $40 per month with a $40 one time registration fee. If your child is enrolled in Valley Academy and you would like to enroll in this program click here.
