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 (for grades K-8 and aftercare ONLY for preschool) in a loving, 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.
