STEM, Arts, Physical Activities and More!
Looking for opportunities for your child to learn and play when the school day ends? J at School provides unique after-school programming to engage your child’s curiosity and creativity with enriching classes available right at your school! With three sessions throughout the year (and yearlong programming at certain locations), your child can explore and enhance their understanding of a variety of subjects.
How do I find out what enrichment classes are being offered at my child’s school?
Each school has their own specific webpage which details which enrichment classes are offered at that location. You can find the list of classes available at your child’s school by clicking here.
How do I register for enrichment classes?
There are two ways to register. You can call our Customer Solutions team at 844.452.2244 or register online from the page for your child’s school by clicking here.
How much do enrichment classes cost?
The cost of our enrichment classes are determined by the vendor who charges a specific rate per child per class, which means the cost of our classes can vary significantly depending on the type of program and the provider. The day of the week can also affect the number of classes per session and so prices may vary depending on the day of the week during which they are offered. Pre-planned closures for holidays, school improvement days, etc. have already been accounted for in the pricing of our enrichment classes.
For our yearlong classes, the total number of classes throughout the year are calculated and the price is divided into equal monthly installments for your convenience. Please note that we do not offer prorations or discounts for late registrations.
Can I still register my child for an enrichment class after the session has already begun?
We still allow registrations through the first week of each enrichment session. Please note that J at School does not prorate in cases of late registration.
When will I know if the enrichment class(es) for which my child has registered are running?
We make final decisions about which enrichment classes will run and which will not one full week before the class is scheduled to begin. You will receive an email from our Customer Solutions team either confirming the class or notifying you that the class has been cancelled for the session.
What does my child need for enrichment classes?
Although students at some of our schools may have the opportunity to receive a school-provided snack before their enrichment classes begin, we recommend that all students who are registered for enrichment bring a snack just in case. Any specific supplies needed by students in order to be successful in a class will be communicated to you by the vendor. Other than that, your child just needs a willingness to learn!
What happens if my child’s enrichment class is canceled?
If an enrichment class is canceled due to an instructor being unavailable, your child will be absorbed into the regular After School program free of charge for the day. You will receive an email notification of the cancellation as soon as possible. Should you decide to pick up your child after school rather than having her or him participate in the After School program, we highly recommend that you reach out to your child’s classroom teacher to inform her/him of the change in plans.
In the event of a cancellation due either to the instructor’s absence or CPS being closed (due to inclement weather or for other extenuating circumstances), we will make every effort to provide a make-up class at the end of the session. If there is not an opportunity for a make-up class at the end of the session you will be provided a refund for the cost of the missed class.
What happens if my child has to miss one of her/his enrichment classes?
We do not provide prorations or refunds in cases of missed classes when the absence is due to the child’s personal schedule. We contract with our vendors for a specific number of classes; for this reason, our vendors cannot provide individualized make-up classes for student absences.
I’m interested in registering in one of your yearlong programs. Do I need to register for the entire year?
Our yearlong programs are designed to sustain and support your child’s growth and development throughout the course of the full academic year. For this reason, even if you do not select each month upon registering, your child will be automatically enrolled in the program throughout the entire year. You will be automatically charged for the first month of participation upon registration; for every month following, you will be charged on the first of the month. If you elect to participate in one of our yearlong programs, this will be considered authorization to charge the card on file on your account on the first of each month.
If you would like to cancel your registration at any point, or change the card on file for automatic payments, please note that we require two weeks’ advance notice for our yearlong programs. All requests to cancel registration must be received the full two weeks in advance in order to ensure that you will not be charged for the following month’s tuition. You can cancel your registration by contacting our Customer Solutions team at 844.452.2244 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
