ASC Registration for 2018-2019
After-School Care (ASC) registration for the 2018-2019 school year begins Monday, April 23rd at 9:00am, and ends on Saturday, May 5th. Families that successfully complete and submit their 2018-2019 ASC registration materials before the Saturday, May 5th deadline will be notified of their registration status via email message by Friday, May 25th.
Registration materials received after Saturday, May 5th will be reviewed and processed on a first-come, first-served basis for program registration or waiting list placement (depending on availability). Typically, it can take up to ten (10) business days to review, process, and confirm program registration status information.
In order to reserve space for your child(ren), please do the following:
#1. Complete the online registration form.
#2. Pay the non-refundable registration fee – $30.00 per child or $50.00 per family.
#3. Pay weekly care fees for the first and last week of 2018-2019 ASC – $170.00 per child.
Please submit fees to the attention of Ms. LaNae Horsey, 435 Creamery Way, Suite 300, Exton, PA 19341. Fees must be submitted in a sealed envelope with the ASC student(s) first and last names indicated on the front. Fees must be paid-in-full prior to a student beginning in the program or before a child can be placed on the ASC waiting list.
Weekly care fees for 2018-2019 will be $85.00 per week per child regardless of the number of days your child(ren) attends. There will be no additional charge for care on scheduled early dismissal days. Additionally, weekly care fees will be adjusted for the few weeks during the school year that Collegium is only in session for a partial week (ex. Thanksgiving week). Weekly care fees are not adjusted for weather-related or emergency school closings.
Confirmation of registration will be provided via email. Once registration is confirmed, the weekly care fee is non-refundable unless Collegium is able to fill your child’s space in the program with another student. If we cannot fill the space, the weekly care fee will not be refunded.

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. Is ASC provided on early dismissal days?
A. Yes, except when the Collegium Calendar notes an early dismissal for both students and staff. During the 2018-2019 school year, those days will be Friday, August 31st and Wednesday, November 21st. 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. For early dismissal days only, ASC parent pick up begins at 1:30pm.
