Before School Care

An adult supervised program is available each morning prior to the school day for students from 7:00 – 7:30 a.m. in Room 107.

There is a $2.00 flat fee for morning care  from 7:00-7:30 am.  The fee can be paid on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.


Extended Day – Pre K-5

For students in grades kindergarten through fifth, a program is offered from 2:15 – 5:45 p.m. each day that school is in full session. The program may be used as little or as often as needed, daily or on a day-to-day basis. Parents must register each child for the program and complete a sign-up form. Fees are charged on an hourly basis and may be paid daily, weekly or monthly.

Physical activity, snacks (parents need to provide a nut free snack for their student), homework, reading, computer time, games, arts and crafts, story time, and outdoor games (weather permitting) are all part of the after school program.

Note: If a parent or guardian is late picking up a child at school dismissal time, the child will be sent to extended day and charged a fee. Students not picked up from extended day by 5:45 pm will also be charged a late fee.

To gain entrance to pick up your child from extended day, use the Tech Center doors on the west end of the south parking lot. If you need to reach an extended day staff member please call 630-353-4555.

Junior High After School Activities (JHASA)

St. Joan of Arc School offers Junior High After School Activities (JHASA). This program consists of two hours (2:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m.) of adult supervision. If additional hours are needed on any day/s, students may join the Extended Day Program. JHASA  takes place on each day that school is in full session. An hourly fee is charged.

Junior high students will work on homework projects, using the technology lab, classrooms, etc. There is also time for open gym activities. If your student is there after 4:15 pm, they will be sent to the Extended Day Program  until 5:45 pm. (The program is designed to be loose and free flowing so as to be a comfortable transition from the more structured school day).  However, students may not leave the campus.

This program is especially useful if your child has a scheduled after school activity at SJA because children may not remain on the campus unattended.
