After School Program

Information and Guidelines

Welcome
Because of the ongoing unknowns of the Covid-19 pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, the Fall 2021 Cathedral School After School Program will be conducted in a hybrid model. Some classes, taught by Cathedral’s vetted vendors and developed to provide educational and social creative fun for the students, will take place live, in school, in socially distanced classrooms, or entirely outdoors; others will use Zoom and other appropriate technology on student laptops. If the need arises, in-person classes will pivot to remote formats.
 
General Information
The Fall term of the After School Program runs from Monday, September 13 to Thursday, December 16, 2021, but note that some classes have later start dates or earlier end dates. Classes are held Mondays through Fridays, on regular full school days. Classes are NOT held on days when school is not in session. Class fees vary depending on the number of class sessions, vendor costs, and materials involved. Unless otherwise noted, in-person classes meet once a week, from 3:30-5:00 p.m. and remote classes run from 4:30-5:30 p.m.
 
Registration
Registration for After School classes is available online. Most classes require a minimum enrollment of five students to run and availability of a course depends on sufficient enrollment. At the same time, for in-person classes, safety and social distancing requirements may limit maximum enrollment to just eight students.

Please follow the link on our website, www.cathedralnyc.org to register. There is a non-refundable one-time registration fee of $30 per semester. You will be billed by the Business Office for the tuition after the start of the term.

Enrollment is limited and classes are filled on a first-enrolled basis. Registration cannot be accepted without payment of the registration fee. Children are automatically enrolled in their chosen classes unless parents are otherwise notified by email.

If your child is particularly interested in a class that is full or may not be listed for their age group, please contact the After School director and we will try to help.
 
Financial Aid
  • After School Program classes will be eligible for a 20% financial aid discount. Aid will be provided for one class per semester.
  • To be eligible for aid, the family must have been awarded a financial aid discount for general tuition. Only the application submitted for general tuition aid is required. A separate TADS application for the ASP is not required. In addition, there must be no past due student billing invoices and the account must be current.
Please contact the Business Office with questions and for more information.
 
Refunds
Except for the non-refundable registration fee of $30, course fees are fully refundable until the second class. You will be billed for the classes by the Business Office. Payment may be made by check or by credit card. We regret that, because of vendor commitments, there can be no refunds after the second class. There are also no refunds for snow days or other emergency closures.
