Extended Day

The Extended Day program is a before and after school care program licensed in the State of Virginia and approved by the Office of Education in the Catholic Diocese of Arlington. The Extended Day Program provides a safe and enjoyable environment for students beyond the hours of the normal school day.

The program provides high quality before and after school childcare in a loving and safe and Christian environment. An experienced director is supported by dedicated and devoted staff members. The students participate in a variety of activities including outdoor and indoor games; arts & crafts; homework room; quiet time for reading, movies and holiday celebrations.

Contract payments for the Extended Day Program will be made through the FACTS program.
