After School Program

Information and Guidelines

Welcome
Because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, the Cathedral School After School Program will be conducted entirely on-line during the Fall 2020 semester. The classes, taught by Cathedral’s vetted vendors, are developed to provide educational and social creative fun for the students, using Zoom and other appropriate technology on their laptops. They are designed to require little to no adult engagement aside from the initial set up and our instructors are available to help you through that.
 
General Information
The Fall term of the Virtual After School Program runs from Monday, September 21 to Thursday, December 17, 2020. Classes are held on Mondays through Thursdays, 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, all classes meet once a week, 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 the availability of a course depends on sufficient enrollment. Please note that in order to help meet the minimum registration requirements for the classes run, some may include students from other NYC independent schools. You are welcome to invite non-Cathedral School friends and siblings to register for this program.

There is a non-refundable one-time registration fee of $30 per semester. Class fees vary and will be calculated during the registration process. Credit card payment is required.

Enrollment is limited and classes are filled on a first-enrolled basis. 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.
