Lower School ASP Director: Mariana Stevenson
The caring atmosphere of Rutgers Preparatory School is extended to the hours after school from 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Our After School Program meets the highest quality standards in staff qualifications and we provide students with an inclusive program that offers parents peace of mind knowing that their child is safe, comfortable, and engaged in worthwhile activities during their time with us.
Planned activities include arts and crafts, inside and outside free play, computer lab time, and occasional Friday movies. Supervised homework will also take place each week.
We also offer a variety of “After School Clubs” throughout our school year. Some recent club offerings have included Chess, Young Authors, LEGO Robotics, and Young Diplomats. Teacher run clubs are $6 an hour. Outside rentals like Chess will be a different rate. After School Clubs are offered to all of our Lower School students in Grades K though 5.
The fee for the After School Program is $6 per hour, and $1 a minute after 6:00 p.m. paid to the counselor at time of pick-up. The RPS Business Office will mail parents a monthly bill.
