Q. How Do Students From Other CCS Buildings Arrive for ASC?

Q. What is the Weekly Care Fee for ASC?
A. The 2013-2014 fee is $65.00 per child, per week, regardless of attendance. Additionally, a registration fee is required. The total amount is listed on each ASC Registration Form.
Q. When Can I Register for ASC?
A. Each spring, CCS families and incoming CCS families can participate in the ASC New Family Registration process for the upcoming school year. After the New Family Registration process is complete, registration materials are still accepted on a first-come, first-served basis for immediate registration or waiting list placement (depending on availability). Families are notified of their child(ren)'s registration status (either "registered" or "wait listed") via email after their materials are submitted and processed.
Q. Can Collegium Register All Students for ASC?
A. No. Due to the amount of interest generated by ASC, students are registered in the program using a lottery. Families can participate in the lottery by returning the completed Registration Form and registration fee before the listed deadline.
Q. Is ASC Offered on Half-Days?
A. Yes, but not on the last day of school. During regularly scheduled half-days, ASC students arrive at 12:15pm and can stay until 6:00pm. Lunch is provided and there is no additional fee for the lunch or extended day at ASC. Lunch details are provided to registered families a week before each scheduled half-day.
