Parker 7-22

After School Program

Parker’s After School Program is more than a place to come after the academic school day. It is a safe haven, where students are invited to explore interests, receive academic support, strengthen social/emotional skills, and create memories beyond the classroom walls. Whether your child is joining us for one day, or each afternoon, we hope their creative minds are inspired to further engage in the world around them through our program.

See below for helpful details regarding our program. Ready to register? Please visit Parker’s CampBrain registration portal to select the course offerings.
