SPARC Before & After School Programs


The programs provide a fun and safe environment for students to continue to learn and grow beyond school hours. The program provides:
  • Snack Time: A healthy after school snack and 100% Juice are provided.
  • Social Time: A chance for friends to catch up, talk about their day, and unwind.
  • Games and Activities: Every day provides a different activity, or choice of activities that work on a core physical, mental, or enrichment element. SPARC focuses on teamwork, sportsmanship, strategy, critical thinking, and more!
  • Homework Time: We give the students a chance to work on any homework from the day, study for any tests, or ask the staff for any specific help with an assignment.
  • Special Events: Movies, pizza parties, and cookouts!
The program is a licensed child care program that provides a great opportunity for your child to learn and grow both before and after school through a variety of clubs, sports, enrichment activities, homework help, and mentoring. SPARC also offers clubs throughout the year to enhance learning and physical activity beyond school hours. Download SPARC Registration Form (PDF).
