Welcome to LEEP Academy’s After-School Program 2022-2023

The After-School Program is designed and overseen by the LEEP Dual Language Academy staff. Our after-school program will support and enhance children's school experience with homework support, to help them academically, and various enrichment activities built to encourage children to grow in social skills, confidence, and independence, all in a supervised and safe environment. 

Each week contains various activities, including Arts/Literacy, Math, Science, Creative Arts, Music and Movement, free play, and socialization. In addition, our curriculum addresses all aspects of language: listening, speaking, and vocabulary. 

The LEEP After-school program runs from  September 12, 2022, to June 16, 2023

  • 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm, Monday-Thursday

LEEP Academy subsidizes this after-school program, but we ask families to contribute a standard yearly fee of  $2,000 for five days and $1,500 for three days. The annual tuition will be divided into monthly payments and be due on the first of each month.

We cannot offer month-to-month registration. Registration is based on space availability; re-entry and schedule changes are made only based on space availability.

Deposit:

 In order to secure staffing and the student’s space in the program, we ask families to make a non-refundable, one-month tuition deposit at the time of registration. This non-refundable deposit will go towards the last unpaid month of the student's attendance in the program. Families must give a minimum of 10 days of advance notice of withdrawal to use the deposit towards the following month's tuition.

***The deposit applies for new enrollment or re-entering students to the after-school program.

Refunds and Missing Payments

LEEP Academy does not offer refunds or make-ups for missed days. 
Fees are not prorated due to late registration, student absence, illness, or other reasons beyond the control of the school.
Parents/Guardians are still obligated to pay for the days their children are absent from the program unless they have been officially withdrawn from the program.
Payments are due on the first day of the month. If payment is not made on the first school day of the month, the student may not attend until payment is made. 
Payments are still due for that day whenever school is closed due to bad weather.

Withdrawal:

If you need to withdraw from the after-school program, please write and send your request to familyhelp@leepschools.org at least 10 days before the next month's start date. Verbal notification is not valid. All payment accounts must be clear at the time of withdrawal; the deposit will be used as payment for the last month of the program.
