Before & After School Programs

The St. Mary’s Academy Extended Day Program is a service provided for the care and safety of students enrolled in the Academy. This service provides care on school days before school from 7:30 a.m. to 8:10 a.m., and after school from 2:40 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. The program is staffed by St. Mary’s employees, with help from assistants from Bay Path University during the afternoon hours. Your child(ren) are cared for in a safe, wholesome, well-supervised environment. The afternoon hours begin with completion and review of homework followed by playtime. Complimentary breakfast is served in before school, while snacks are provided in after school.

This very flexible program allows parents to drop off their enrolled children early, or pick them up later after school hours. There are no pre-registration requirements or pre-payment requirements – you are only billed for the time you use.
