The University School Extended Day Program (EDP) is a service provided for students enrolled in the regular hours of operation of our school. There are three EDP options for each regularly scheduled school day, in accordance with the University School calendar.
Our Extended Day Program is fully licensed by the Department of Human Services and is directed by Debra Price, Assistant Director of Admissions and Administration at University School.
Early Option (7:15 a.m. – 8:45 a.m.) : Students are dropped off at the school’s front entrance (on College Avenue) and enter through the main entrance doors. Students are then sent or escorted to age-grouped classrooms. All students not enrolled in EDP who arrive early are charged a drop-in fee of $15.
Study Hall (2:45 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.): Immediately following their last class, EDP participants report to their designated Study Hall classrooms. Students bring a snack (that does not require heating) to have at this time; University School does not provide snacks. P1-OI8 students work on assigned homework until completed. They may then read a book or do other structured activities as directed by the teacher. Students should be prepared with a book in their backpack. P2-OI8 Study Hall is designated as a quiet study time. Students in EC-P1 have structured age-appropriate activities. Pick-up from the front lobby is no later than 4:00. At 4:05 p.m., students go to Enrichment, and a drop-in fee of $15 is charged.
Enrichment Option (4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.): Enrichment EDP begins immediately after Study Hall. P2-OI8 students relocate to the gymnasium and have a period of active play (outdoors when weather permits), organized games or enrichment activities. At 4:30 p.m., students who still have homework are directed to a quiet study area. Priority is given to finishing homework in the school-age group of students. Students without homework can choose from active play or quiet activities. EC-P1 students also have some outdoors or gymnasium play time and other age-appropriate activities. Cross-age grouping of students is possible depending on the number of students and the nature of planned activities. Students are to be picked up from the front lobby no later than 5:30. Fees are charged for late pick-up beginning at 5:31 p.m., with a minimum of $15 and increasing by $1/minute for each minute thereafter.
Enrollment: Students may be enrolled in all three options, Early Option only, Study Hall only, or both of the afternoon options. Many University School EDP students also participate in clubs or organizations at school during Study Hall time, and they may rejoin the EDP program at the conclusion of their meetings.
Drop-in: Parents may also choose to use the EDP on a drop-in basis. Drop-in charges are $15 per unit of care and are charged to student accounts. Early Option, Study Hall, and EnrichmentOption each count as one unit of EDP care.
