Supervised after-school programs are available for The Highlands School PreK-8th grade students. 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.

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.
