Aftercare Program

St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School in Orlando partners with the YMCA of Central Florida to provide educational and recreational based aftercare programs to serve the student population in grades 1-8.

The Y After School Programs at St. Charles Borromeo school, nurtures the potential of every child. At the Y, children are cultivating the values, skills, and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health, and academic achievements. Students in the YMCA program will receive a small snack, followed by Homework time and then supervised activities (structure sports, art education, STEM, Global Learning, etc.) through-out the day.

SCBCS also offers age specific aftercare for students in PreK 3 – Kindergarten in room 102 next to the courtyard playground.

Both programs offer a minimum 18:1 ratio of staff members to students in a safe and nurturing environment.

Aftercare fees are per child per week and are as follows:

After School 3PM – 6PM (2PM on Wednesdays), snack provided


The program fees are $42 a week per student with a onetime registration fee for afterschool (covers student insurance) of $12. A reduced rate of $26 a week per student would be applicable for the two school weeks of three days or less (March 26-28 and May 29-31).

Payments are due bi-weekly, every Wednesday with a check, credit card (YMCA only) or Money order.

Families that have a student in both programs may go to the PreK3 – Kindergarten (Room 102) program and request the older student(s) at the YMCA program be released or walked over from the YMCA program to them. Alternatively, parents may wish to visit both programs to check out their students. Parents may not go to the YMCA program and request that the PreK3 – Kindergarten student be brought to the YMCA program.


Emergency Drop-Off

Students who are not picked up by 3:30 p.m. (2:30 p.m. on Wednesdays) from regular dismissal or after an after school activity (such as sports, band etc.) will be brought to aftercare. There is a $10 per day per student charge for emergency Drop-Offs. This program should be used only for emergencies when parents/guardians are not able to pick up at dismissal times. After three emergency Drop-Offs per trimester, students who come for a fourth or more will be automatically registered and charged the full weekly rate ($42). The end dates for the trimesters are November 3 and February 16. This goes for both the YMCA and PreK3 – Kindergarten program. Student’s attendance will be tracked monthly.
