After School Care

(Available for ages 4 through 8th grade)

After-School Care is provided to create a safe, structured, relaxing, Christ-centered environment for your child. Some activities for the elementary age students include singing, arts and crafts, story time, playtime (both indoor and outdoor), and group and individual games.  Older elementary students are given the opportunity to work on their homework.  Middle School students use this time as a structured study session.

After-School Care is available for elementary age students on all regular school days from 2:45pm to 6:00pm at the Arlington campus and 2:45pm to 5:30pm at the Mansfield campus.  Middle School hours are from 3:20pm to 6:00pm.  Any Middle School student who has not been picked up by 4:00pm will be sent to After-School Care and the hourly rate will be assessed.

No After-School Care is provided for students on early dismissal days.

Middle School students are dismissed at the end of 8th period, and are expected to be picked up within 30 minutes of dismissal.

  • 6th-8th grade students who remain after school 30 minutes past dismissal are expected to report to After School Care in the elementary cafeteria.
  • ALL students should be picked up from PCA Afterschool care by 6:00pm at the Arlington campus or by 5:30pm at the Mansfield campus, unless they are involved in a school-supervised after-school activity. In this case, students should be picked up within 30 minutes after the activity ends.

Financial policies:

1. If your child attends the program, you will be charged $6.00 per hour. A $100 deposit is needed to set up your account. This must be done before the beginning of the school year, either by paying online into your RenWeb account or by paying by cash or check at Back- to- School Night at the After-School Care table. You will need to keep your account balance at a minimum of $50.00 at all times, or you will be charged $10.00 per hour until your account shows the minimum balance. If your account balance reaches $0, your child will be unable to attend the program until your balance is raised to the $50.00 minimum. If your child is brought to the program when you have a $0, balance your child will be taken to the Elementary Principal’s office, and you or your emergency contact people will be called to come pick up your child.

2. Late fees will be assessed if your child is not picked up by 5:30pm.  If your child is picked up at the Arlington campus after 5:30pm, but before 6:00pm, you will be charged $8.00 per quarter hour. If your child is picked up after 6:00pm for Arlington or after 5:30pm for Mansfield, you will be charged at a rate of $1.00 per minute past the deadline. Please make every effort to notify us if you know you are running late (Ext. 1115 for Arlington or Ext. 1300 for Mansfield).

3. At the end of the school year, any credit balances will be carried over to the next school year or refunded upon written request. If you have an outstanding balance, it must be paid in full before you will receive your child’s report card.

Important Things to Know:

If someone who is not on the authorized list on the application form comes to pick up your child, only the parent/guardian of the child may call the school to provide the name of the alternate pick-up person. That person will then need to present a driver’s license for identification; otherwise, the child will not be released.

The administration of the Academy, the director of the After-School Program, and the workers serving under them shall have full discretion in the administration of appropriate discipline for the student, with the exception of corporal punishment. The program reserves the right to adopt rules and regulations from time to time, and all students enrolled shall comply fully with the rules and regulations then in force.

No After-School Care is provided on early dismissal days.

No one will be allowed to pick up your child except those persons listed on your ASC enrollment form. Please keep your list updated.
