Supervised after-school programs are available for The Highlands School PreK-8th grade students. Preschool, Lower and Middle School Students are eligible to enroll in the After-school Care program. After-school Care at The Highlands School provides a safe and organized environment for your child. Every After-school Care employee must complete a background check and safe environment practices through the Catholic Diocese of Dallas yearly.
A calendar of activities is posted at the beginning of every month and a sample afternoon schedule is as follows
- 3:00-3:30 Snack time, begin homework, and silent reading

Homework assistance begins in Kindergarten and is completed in a group setting. Older students who can work independently may request additional homework time.
After-school Care hours are 3:00-6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday for registered after-care students. We also provide care on a “Drop-In” basis for all other students. The charge for drop-ins is $15 per hour for one student, $25 for two. Drop-in charges begin at the time your child is brought into After-care. Any child not picked up after carpool is brought directly to the After-care Center in the school cafeteria and is considered a drop-in. Late pick-up fees begin at 6:01 and parents are billed at $1.00 per minute. All fees are billed through FACTS account.
To register your child for After-school Care at the point of enrollment, please submit your After-school Care enrollment forms and corresponding fees to the Accounting Office.
