24/25 After School Membership Fee Invoicing Schedule
Below is the schedule for invoices and payments for the 24/25 After School Membership; please mark this in your calendar and plan accordingly.

Invoicing Schedule PDF.

 

Our Financial Assistance will be offered on a sliding scale based on our monthly rate and the financial and household data you provide. If you apply for financial assistance when you submit your application, you *must* have your 2023 1040 *or* your two most recent pay stubs for each adult working in your household; if these are not included alongside your registration packet, you will be moved onto our lottery-based waitlist and will not be offered a scholarship. Please plan and gather your documents in anticipation of the above-mentioned registration date. 

Please note:  

  • If invoices remain unpaid upon their due dates, your membership offer will be rescinded, and your child will return to the waitlist. We strive to fill all our seats to ensure we serve our community to the best of our ability. Overdue program fees indicate that you are no longer interested in our programming at Club and that we can offer the next family on our lottery-based waitlist this seat. (If you communicate a challenge with us before the invoice due date, we may be able to navigate a payment plan; however, this option is not a guarantee.) 
  • We do not offer refunds for invoices paid. As an organization striving to sustainably serve as many youths as possible, we have a policy of no refunds.  
  • Except for June 2025, our monthly costs will remain consistent in your invoice schedule. 

Enrolled Club Members are expected to meet an attendance minimum of 3 days each week the club is open, except in cases of a declared medical reason or vacation.

Please review our Family Code of Conduct for more information regarding our expectations for each Club Member and family.
