Extended Day Information and Application


The primary purpose of the Porter-Gaud Extended Day Program is to assist parents by providing after-school supervision for their children in a secure, happy, and relaxed setting. Students are encouraged to complete homework, read, make new friends, respect others, strengthen communication skills and try something new.


Our goal is to offer a flexible program, modified to meet the needs of our community. The students are provided time to complete homework, have snacks and enjoy the afternoon with a variety of games, arts & crafts and sports.


The Extended Day program is available to Porter-Gaud Lower School students.

Hours: 2:45 to 5:45 p.m. daily when school is in session.
