After School Enrichment Program

After careful consideration, CMS will not be opening its After School Enrichment Program (ASEP) this summer. Parents who have paid thus far will receive communication regarding refunds. 

ASEP registration for the 2020-2021 school year has been postponed until further notice.  Recurring payments have been suspended until May 15, 2020.

Enriching education through exciting experiences and exploration

The After School Enrichment Program (ASEP) provides a warm, caring environment beyond school hours where your children have the opportunity to play with school friends and get homework out of the way before the family sits down to dinner. ASEP offers exciting activities which stimulate children to be healthier and happier, including sports, art activities and computer exploration.

ASEP operates in CMS schools, utilizing age-appropriate materials and equipment for students. From the media center to the playground, students spend out-of-school hours in safe and stimulating environments. Using a curriculum correlated with the Common Core and Essential Standards, ASEP site coordinators, school administrators and teachers work together to ensure the program supports the learning taking place during the school day. 

Besides academic support, the ASEP program focuses on the development of students’ social skills. Program leaders are respectful and positive toward students, mindful of the importance of appropriate role models. Students are encouraged to develop friendships with schoolmates that for some will last many years.

*All registration forms (Winter, Spring and Summer Camp) and downloadable documents (ASEP Calendar and Family Guidelines) can be accessed through the ASEP Resources and Downloads section of the website.*
