After-School Care (ASC)

Send by email
Includes Before-School Care

The sense of neighborhood created on the campus from 3 to 6 p.m. is one that makes Catlin Gabel After-School Care an excellent choice for many families. With teachers and teaching assistants to plan and supervise art projects, cooking capers, sports events, computer fun, and organized games, students have plenty to do. Because Catlin Gabel students come from all over the metro area, After-School Care makes it possible for peers to participate in activities together just as they would as neighbors. Before-school coverage, Lower School enrichment classes, and all-day field trips on some no-school days are also part of this program.
