After Care & Enrichment
After Care & Enrichment (ACE) is a coed program for SCH students located in the McCausland Lower School building, which sits adjacent to the Wissahickon Woods and is surrounded by three natural playscapes and a turf field.

After Care Programming
All ACE offerings are supported by SCH best practices and executed with alignment to our core values: Integrity, Courage, Diversity, Thoughtfulness & Resilience.
ACE is a coed program and students will participate in outdoor activities this academic year utilizing SCH’s many, unique open-air spaces (weather dependent). SCH's after care provides a safe place for students in grades Pre-K to 5 to play with friends, recess games, craft, or get a head start on their homework.

Our enrichment courses for Pre-K to grade 5 students offer various engaging and academically stimulating activities that promote positive student development. These activities cover a range of subjects for different grade levels including STEM (i.e. FIRST LEGO® League, gardening, chess), arts & crafts (i.e. sewing, song-writing, cooking), recreational fun (i.e. yoga, squash, big shots) and more. Enrichments are offered seasonally, three times a year—fall, winter, and spring. Enrichments are scheduled extracurriculars where students can receive advanced academic instruction, enhance a passion, or discover new hobbies, interests, and activities outside the classroom setting.
- Rates vary depending on the number of weeks (see a sampling of rates below).
- Most enrichment courses run from 3:45-4:45 PM. There is no charge for after care before your student's program starts.

It is an honor and a privilege to serve our SCH families during out-of-school hours, providing engaging experiences for our students. I come to SCH with many years of experience in after care and summer programming and as I join the SCH community, through the season, I cannot wait to meet all of our families and students.
