What are Extracurricular Programs at MPCS?
Mount Paran Christian School is proud to offer a wide variety of activities for students to get involved before and after the regular school day. Our extended-day programs include Early Care, Eagle Adventure Zone (EAZ) after-school care, The Zone for middle schoolers, and Summer Programs.
Club opportunities, music and dance lessons, arts groups, and sports teams are great options as well. Be sure to visit the arts and athletics web pages for that information. Extracurricular club links for each school division are listed below on the right.
Complimentary Early Care
Early care supervision is offered for students in grades PK-5. Students may be dropped off at 7:00 a.m. Preschool students should be walked in to the Sewell Cottage. Lower school students may be dropped at the Mulkey Hall main office entrance.
This service will be provided on all regular school days for no additional fee but will not include breakfast.
EAZ Extended-day Program
Eagle Adventure Zone extended-day program offers a fun place to play, complete homework, and participate in supervised educational activities. Registration for EAZ is completed during enrollment. The drop-in rate is $25 per day with advance registration by 12:00 p.m.
If your child is enrolled in after-school activities such as ballet, chess, etc. on campus, staff members will get him/her to the activity. For details or to reserve a spot for your child, contact the Eagle Adventure Zone manager. An online payment system will be required to reserve a spot in EAZ for drop-in students.
Lower school students remain in Mulkey Hall, and preschooler/TK students are in the Sewell Cottage for Eagle Adventure Zone.
The Zone Middle School Extended-day Program
The Zone is a structured student-centered option for parents who need the convenience of a later pickup time for their middle school students. Activities will include
- outside recess or planned physical activity
- snack provided
- homework hour
- collaborative games and board games
- technology-learning focus
- occasional add-on excursions on extended days
The Zone will begin in the Weber Collaboratory and run until 6:00 p.m. on school days with pickup at the front office entrance. Program cost is paid annually or can be pro-rated per semester. Please reference the current tuition schedule for fees that are billed through FACTS/student accounts.
Parents may also opt in at $10 per day with easy online pre-registration. The fee provides staff supervision, snacks, and enhanced activities for the year, with no profit to the school. Students not attending The Zone or an activity directly after school must be picked up in carpool after normal dismissal.
As a reminder, no students are allowed on the school campus after hours without adult MPCS staff or parent supervision. At school dismissal times, parents/guardians are asked to make arrangements for the prompt pick up of children. At the conclusion of carpool, all students in preschool, lower school, and middle school will be assigned to Eagle Adventure Zone / The Zone extended-day programs. Students who are not picked up by the conclusion of carpool (3:25 p.m. for all divisions) will be taken to the appropriate extended-day program and charged the daily drop-in fee.
Did you know we offer a Drop-In Service? When space is available and with notification by 12:00 p.m. to the after-school care program, students who do not regularly attend Eagle Adventure Zone may drop in for the day. Drop-in attendance requires a completed drop-in registration form and payment of the $25 drop-in fee ($10 for middle school).
Any student who fails to comply with after-school care guidelines/expectations will be denied the privilege of attending, and parents will have to make alternative arrangements to have their child picked up by 3:25 p.m.
