Auxiliary Programs

St. John's is a place where kids come to learn and play. Children are supported and readied for life as a St. John’s student through our nursery and preschool programs, and they are further supported as they play, learn and grow through our After-School and Summer at St. John’s Camp programs. St. John's is a School that is fun, safe, and where learning is celebrated. Our auxiliary programs are designed to support the function and mission of the School, and St. John's Auxiliary Programs help our School create leaders, build strong families, and foster a strong community.

After-School Program

St. John's offers a fun and engaging After-School Program (ASP) for our students from afternoon dismissal until 5:30 p.m. Organized by grade, the fee-based program provides opportunities for children to play, enjoy a snack, and engage in fun activities. Activities include crafts, games, activities, outdoor play, building with LEGO bricks, and FUN Fridays. Students are provided the opportunity to complete homework and reading assignments while attending the After-School Program. In order to protect the health and well-being of our community, the After-School Program is available for full-time or monthly enrollment only, and drop-in care will not be offered.

For After-School Program information and availability, please contact Monica Breeding.

Student Pick Up

All students must be picked up from the After-School Program by 5:30 p.m. The ASP operates only on regularly scheduled school days. It is not available on the last school day before Thanksgiving, the last school day before Christmas holidays, Games Day or the last day of School.

Summer at St. John's

Summer at St. John's has been a long-held tradition, and we truly appreciate the interest of our community in our summer programs. After considerable review of the current guidelines from Dallas County health officials about pandemic protocols and their impact on our experiential program, we have made the difficult decision to pause our summer program in 2021. As soon as we are able, we will provide an update for plans for Summer 2022 so that we can welcome back summer campers and counselors!

Nursery

The St. John’s Auxiliary Programs offers a Nursery program for children ages six weeks to three years. The Nursery is available from 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on all days when St. John’s Episcopal School is in session.
