Before & Aftercare

Our Before & Aftercare Programs are offered every day that SAA is in session to provide more flexibility for those families who need it. Students in Before and/or Aftercare can do their homework, play quiet games, and participate in other self-directed activities. Depending on the weather and space availability after school, students have the option to play games in the gym or on the playground.

The Before & Aftercare programs are offered for an additional fee.  Fees are waived on the morning or afternoon that a student participates in an extracurricular activity, has a meeting with a faculty/staff member, or is accompanying a volunteering parent. This excludes private music lessons on the SAA campus. 

Both Before and Aftercare are drop-in services, therefore there is no advanced reservation required.
