Acera After School Enrichment Programs
Our in-person after school programs are open to all kids ages 5 and older. We offer experiments for curious scientists, skill building for programmers and artists, and rich discussions for rising philosophers, all taught by specialist educators with passion and field-based expertise.
All of Acera’s Remote After School programs meet once per week from 3:30-5:30pm and are offered on a trimester basis. In the 2021-22 school year, the schedule of trimesters is as follows:
Trimester 1 – September 8 through November 23
Trimester 2 – November 30 through March 11
Trimester 3 – March 16 through June 10
The cost for our afternoon programs is $40 per day; or $360-$480 per trimester.
Any changes to your child’s enrollments must be made at least one week before classes start. After that date, we will be unable to issue refunds, but can apply the credit toward other enrichment classes. No refund or reduction in fees is possible for a child who arrives late, leaves early, or attends part of a session due to illness (other than hospital stay).
Health and Safety Protocols
We are delighted to return to in person After School Enrichment! Classes are generally capped at 10 students, and incorporate COVID safety measures such as masking, social distancing, hand sanitizing stations, student material stations/kits to minimize surface transmission risk, an upgraded HVAC system for improved airflow & filtration, and use of outdoor spaces.
Winchester parents! Bus transportation is available from Winchester Public Schools. Winchester Public School buses run from Lincoln, Lynch, McCall and Muraco Schools to Acera’s After School programs upon request. Please list Acera as your After School Program bus stop on the transportation application. According to Winchester Public Schools, the deadline for submitting a transportation application for the 2021-22 school year is July 22, 2021.
Health, dismissal, technology rentals and other required forms will be requested electronically after your online registration has been processed. New students will have to provide all forms, returning students will only be asked for updated forms as needed.
Once a session is fully enrolled, students can choose to be waitlisted. You can pick another session at the same time and switch should a slot become available; or just be waitlisted. When we begin a waitlist, we will do our best to find an instructor to increase the class size.
Limited financial aid is available and awarded based on demonstrated need. Please download the 2021 Reed Hollett Scholarship Application form, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application.
