Core After School

Sacred Heart Schools offers a “Core” After School Program that provides a safe place for any child, K-8, to stay after school until as late as 6 pm Monday-Friday on school days. This program is free.

Parents can pick up children staying in the Core After School Program by coming through the Portry and signing them out. A free snack is provided to all children staying in the Core Program and snacks are also available for purchase through the Bookstore.

Program Times

  • Core After School starts immediately at the end of the school day and ends at 6 pm.
  • Any child not picked up at dismissal by Monday-Thursday at 4 pm and Fridays at 3 pm will automatically go to the Core After School Program.

All students in grades K – 8 are welcome to attend the daily After School Program. Middle School students attend Study Hall from 3:45-5 pm as part of the Core After School Program. The program will not be available during scheduled school breaks or holiday vacations.
