Early Care and After the Bell

At Seven Hills, we know the length of a typical day is different for each of our students and their families. We offer before-school and after-school care programs for students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Our Doherty and Hillsdale campuses both open at 7:30 a.m. and don’t close until 6 p.m.

 

BEFORE SCHOOL CARE

Before school care is offered, free of charge, for students age 2 through grade eight starting at 7:30 a.m. For our pre-kindergarten for two-year-olds students, before school care is available beginning at 8 a.m.

AFTER THE BELL

Our after school program, After the Bell, offers a variety of enrichment activities that complement the school day for pre-kindergarteners through eighth-graders. Children can choose to participate in Encore Club, enrichment programs, music lessons, or a combination of all three. After the Bell is available from 3:15-6 p.m. on both our Hillsdale and Doherty campuses.

 Our younger Lower School students have a fun place to play, learn, and explore in our programs. Whether they’re learning an instrument, pursuing special interests, or spending time with friends, students will enjoy these after school options. Middle School students staying on campus past 3:15 p.m. have an opportunity to join Encore Club, participate in music lessons, and register for after-school enrichment workshops or programs.
