Snack Time Policy:

Please provide healthy snacks for your child, as we will not be able to provide snacks for students. Reminder your child to save snacks for after school. Due to food allergies, students are not allowed to share any food items. Do not send food that will need to be heated or cooked in the microwave.


Water Bottles:

We are asking that every student bring a refillable water bottle with their name on it.


Homework Policy:

Homework time provides students with the opportunity to begin their homework. This is a noise-free time. The students are not allowed to play, talk excessively or be disruptive during

this time. Students will be in assigned seating per grade during homework time. We are happy to assist with homework when needed, but cannot guarantee that each student’s homework is correct or completed. Please have a book in their backpack each day. If your student does not have homework, they are expected to read or sit quietly. If a child is disrupting another student from getting their work done, disciplinary action will be taken.


Games and Toys:

No personal toys or games are permitted at school.


Signing In/ Out Policy:

We ask parents to be diligent in letting the staff know if their child’s schedule will be changing. If you know that your child will not be in After Care due to sickness, vacation, etc., please send Ms. Trimble an email at [email protected] ALL students must be signed out. Students will not be allowed to leave with anyone that is not on the approved list that you have provided during registration or without a written permission slip. There are NO exceptions to this policy.









Tuition Policy:

● Tuition is due on the 1st of each month and must be paid in full no later than the 10th.


● You may pay using the online payment center on Skyward or  

    a cashier’s check made out to Garland Classical Academy. You may make your

    payment as you pick up your child or drop off payment at the school’s office.


● If a payment is received after the 10th a $20.00 late fee will be assessed.


● If tuition and late fees are not paid by the 20th of the month your child will no longer

   be allowed to attend the program.


● Late Pick-Up Policy:

   Late fees will be assessed to your student’s account if you are late picking them up.    

   The late fee is $1 for every minute after 6:30. All late fees must be paid in cash by the

   end of the month or your student will be at risk of no longer being allowed to attend

   the program.


Uniform Policy: 

It is a campus-wide policy that ALL students remain in school uniform while on campus after

school unless changing for a school athletic activity or another pre-approved school activity. We will not allow students to change for non-school related activities.


Disciplinary Policy:

We want to provide each student the opportunity to succeed in the After Care Program. Should a concern arise regarding a child’s behavior/needs, parents will be contacted to discuss/review the situation. Staff will utilize a variety of appropriate interventions to address the behavior. If inappropriate behavior should continue, or if a child’s behavior becomes unsafe for him/her or others, he/she may be suspended temporarily or permanently from membership. A meeting with the director will be held to determine permanent suspension. In addition, if a child’s needs are greater than can be met, the program may not be a suitable option. Students are expected to follow both the GCA Student Handbook and the Student Code of Conduct at all times on campus.
