Bright Futures After-School Program is funded by ASES and 21st Century state and federal grants, which allows it to be free of charge to parents. Bright Futures is not a day-care program, but an academic program. Students enrolled in Bright Futures receive curriculum aligned with the school day in a safe environment, with academic support and enrichment classes, from 2:45 PM to 6:00 PM. The grants that fund Bright Futures require that students enrolled attend the program in it's entirety. For students in elementary school, this means from regular school dismissal until 5:45 PM, every day (Kinders - 5:00 PM). As with regular school, parents are allowed to check their students in late or out early on occasion when necessary (see our early release policy). Due to funding we are limited to 100 spots in our program. Please look at the information below and see if our program will work for your family.
