  • School-Age Child Care

    School Age Child Care (SACC) is a year-round after-school program with an emphasis on homework completion and educational development. SACC's designated staff provide an individualized experience to youth ages 6 to 12 through SACC programming. In addition, SACC members receive access to Club programming in the six core areas at our state-of-the-art Club. SACC staff members evaluate the educational and emotional needs of each enrolled child to provide personalized support to each youth. As a program licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care, SACC accepts daycare vouchers. To enroll, the child must be at least 6-years-old and in first grade, and no older than 12.5 years old. If your child requires additional support to be successful in programming, please indicate this to staff as early as possible.
