Our program operates M-F from 8:00 AM – 3:30 PM and includes breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack for every student in attendance. Our classroom facilitators will assist students in accessing the internet, in making sure that they stay on task and are following their class schedule and will be available to help answer any questions that students may have. The cost is $10 per day per student, but the fee may be waived based on financial need. No one will be turned away.
