Before & After School

The Extended Day Office coordinates our before- and after-school programs which include Extended Day Care (EDC), Extended Day Activities, and Student Clubs.

Provided below are details surrounding all of our Extended Day programs for the 2022-2023 school year.

 

Registration Details

New for Extended Day programs in 2022-2023, registration is moving to a trimester schedule to align with our academic and athletic calendars. This means that all Extended Day programs will start and end with the trimester and registration will open three times, instead of two. 

Registration continues on a first come, first served basis, and many activities have limited space and fill quickly. Waitlists are formed for classes that fill, and we try to move as many students off the waitlist as possible by forming second sections. Please know that forming second sections is only possible for certain classes as other classes are unable to add additional instructors and, therefore, the waitlist will stand.

All registration for Extended Day programs takes place online. Our website is designed to "throttle" which allows for increased traffic on registration days. If you receive a notice that the website is currently throttling, please continue to refresh your browser until you are granted access (a similar experience to buying in-demand concert tickets).

Payment

Payment for all Extended Day programs, except for private music lessons, is billed through the Extended Day registration website. Trimester payment plans are available, and payment may be made by credit card or eCheck.

Private music lessons are billed through our tuition management software, Blackbaud Tuition Management, and associated costs will appear on your monthly billing statement.

Schedule Changes & Cancellations

The Extended Day Office offers a cancellation period following the registration for each trimester. Except for the fall trimester, all cancellations are subject to a $50 cancellation fee per activity. For EDC, the cancellation fee is charged per “batch” of changes per child. Batch changes are multiple changes made to your child’s EDC schedule at one time. Once the cancellation window closes, all charges are non-refundable and non-transferable. Provided below are the deadlines for each trimester's cancellation period. If you wish to change your schedule, please contact the Extended Day Office at extendedday@aoshouston.org or 713-470-5600.

Cancellation Deadlines:

  • July 1 - fall trimester cancellation period with no cancellation fee ends
  • July 2 - fall trimester cancellation period with cancellation fee begins
  • August 13 - fall trimester cancellation period closes
  • November 14 - winter trimester cancellation period closes
