What does ASPire offer you and your child?

Students come directly to ASPire upon dismissal and are provided snacks (including healthy and organic items), followed by homework help from experienced elementary through high school teachers and staff.  Students have access to books at their reading levels, a structured fitness period led by a certified personal trainer & sports coach, and fun educational games. ASPire offers students a safe and secure environment supervised by impassioned personnel who are certified in First-Aid/CPR/AED, with an AED on site. Teachers are trained for emergencies and perform school-procedure drills with our students. Individuals picking up children from ASPire must be listed on the registration form and are entered into the computer check-out system. The front door is monitored from dismissal through 6:30 pm, and unknown individuals are identified and verified prior to being admitted into the building.

Enrollment

Enrollment for the 2017-2018 school year is now open.  While we accept enrollment applications beyond the first day of school, space is limited by the number of after-school teachers and state student:teacher ratios.  Enrollments will be accepted based on registration receipt date, so please register early.  We will enroll full-time students first, part-time students next, and drop-in services based on availability.  A non-refundable annual registration fee of $50 per child is required for enrollment by June 30, 2017 and $75 on or after July 1, 2017. If your child was enrolled in full-time or part-time extended care during the 2016-2017 school year, your parent portal account will remain open, and you will be able to pay your 2017-2018 registration fee and tuition online, once your enrollment documents are received.
