Enrichment activities are offered for students who enroll each quarter. The activities vary somewhat by quarter. Families will receive enrollment forms, sent home with their students, which they can complete and return to sign kids up.
Enrichment occurs from Monday through Thursday from 3:45pm-5:00pm. Each activity is twice a week, either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday. Enrichment costs $2 per day and parents pay for the entire quarter at once. There is no refund for any days a student is absent or enrichment is canceled.
If you have questions about enrichment, please contact Ms. Degnan, our Director, College Completion, at email@example.com or by calling the main office at 773-536-9098.
At Chicago Collegiate, we know that successful homework completion is vital for your student's success in the short- and long-term. In the short term, it allows your child to practice the content and skills they are currently learning in class. In the long term, it allows your child to build the disciplined study habits and organizational skills that will allow them to be successful in high school, college, and beyond.
When students consistently struggle with homework, they are automatically enrolled in Homework Academy. Homework Academy is a dedicated homework intervention time facilitated by a teacher to help students build their content knowledge, study habits, and organizational skills in a supportive environment.
Homework Academy runs Monday through Thursday from 3:45-5:00 p.m. Families will be notified on Friday afternoons if students are enrolled in Homework Academy for the following week.
After School Palmer Park
Chicago Collegiate Charter School does not provide extended hours of on-site child care beyond our school day. If you need child care for times before school at 7:15 a.m., after regular dismissal at 3:45 p.m. Monday-Thursday, after 5:00 p.m. for students staying for tutoring or enrichment, after Friday dismissal at 1:00 p.m., school holidays or teacher professional development days, you'll need to make arrangements.
One option that many families at Chicago Collegiate utilize for this is the programming at Palmer Park. We work with our enrichment partners to provide student transportation to the park after school for an additional weekly fee.
