Additional Information About Bridge

  •  Bridge Afterschool offers affordable after school programs that provide homework help, sports, fitness, recreation, nutrition, art, healthy living skills and most importantly, character and leadership development opportunities. Bridge doesn’t merely provide activities to keep students busy, but instead offers carefully planned opportunities for youth to develop skills and character traits that will enable them to become successful throughout their life. 

  • Why should my student attend an after school program? After school programs ensure student safety and help students to develop good social skills, make better decisions, improve study habits and form strong bonds with adult role models, all while having fun in an age appropriate setting.

  •  Why should my middle school student attend?  Studies have shown that the hours between 3:00 and 6:00 pm are the peak hours for crimes committed by and against children. It is the time when the most experimentation with alcohol, drugs, cigarettes and sex first occurs.

  • Bridge Afterschool Programs open the first day of school and operate from school dismissal until 6:00 pm each day that school is in session, including all early release and minimum days.  

  • The monthly cost for Elementary School Programs is $300 for Full Time and $225 for Part Time enrollment.  Middle School program fees  are  $150  (just $7.50 a day!)  for full time and $80 monthly for part-time enrollment. Part Time enrollment allows attendance up to three days per week.   We also have  daily drop-in for regular and minimum days, as long as space is available.
