Our Programs

Right At School programs keep students active, engaged, and healthy every day. We play group sports and fitness games - and take it outside as much as possible! Students who have homework have dedicated quiet time to focus on that, with support from our talented educators. Our enrichment curriculum follows fun themes that cross a variety of subjects, sure to interest every learner.

Check out a sample of our afterschool curriculum:

We add in plenty of opportunities for socializing with friends, free choice activities, and child-led projects. We incorporate service learning through Right Club Gives Back - student-chosen and student-led community service projects. 

Whether it’s our afterschool program, a kindergarten program, or our holiday break camp, you can rely on a safe and fun program led by nurturing and dedicated educators.

A snack is provided every day in afterschool, half day, and full day programs. Students are welcome to bring their own nut-free snacks from home if they prefer. All surfaces and cleaned before and after snack, and all students will wash hands prior to eating.

Right At School staff are dedicated and experienced professionals with a passion for working with children. As part of our focus on safety, all employees must pass a fingerprint background check, as well as any school district- or state-required checks. All educators participate in our comprehensive blended learning training program, which provides extensive safety, education and positive-guidance-focused training throughout the year.

Our traditional school day programs run every day that school is in session. For planned school breaks and holidays, Right At School runs full day camps in some of our school districts, typically hosted at a few schools within each district. To see which programs are offered in your area:

When children with special needs seek to enroll, our staff will work with your family to determine the best placement for the child. We review every situation on a case-by-case basis to determine if the Right At School large-group setting meets your child’s needs. Our staff will collaborate with the Right At School Inclusion Specialist, your family, and school staff/outside providers (with permission from parents) to best support each child. Children who have an aide during the school day may be required to have an aide during the program. To discuss your child specifically, please reach out to your school’s Area Manager.

Right at School follows a Positive and Progressive Guidance behavioral support program. On occasions when our daily behavior management efforts are not successful in resolving an issue, and concerning behavior undermines the quality of the program environment or the safety of children or staff, Right At School will work in partnership with parents/guardians to find a solution.

Safety has always been our top priority. We know this is a unique school year, and our newly updated safety precautions ensure the safest environment for staff and students. Take a look at what we’ll be doing in programs this year to keep the risk factor low and the fun factor high:

Electives

Electives programs are offered at select locations only. They are typically one hour, 10-12 week classes in the arts, music, foreign language, sports, science, STEM, etc. offered as an additional benefit to students. Classes vary by school, and include courses taught by specialized enrichment vendors.

As a partner to our schools, Right At School manages these enrichment classes to relieve schools of the administrative tasks and to create a streamlined process for parents. Typically, we work with schools and parent groups to identify preferred vendors. While Right At School vets vendor partners and ensures background checks are clear for Electives teachers, the curriculum, teaching strategies, and staff are separate from Right At School.

To see if Electives classes are offered at your school:

  1. Find your school using our program locator: https://rightatschool.com/program-finder/
  2. Look for an “Electives” tab
  3. This will show all Electives classes offered at your school, including dates, pricing, and registration information.

No. Our Electives partners develop the classes to best serve their specific age range so that the students have the best experience.

Payment is due at time of registration in full.

All Elective classes have minimum and maximum enrollment numbers. Once a class reaches its maximum enrollment, the class will be closed to further registration. Families may register for the waitlist on the parent portal and will be notified if a space opens up.

If a class does not meet its minimum enrollment, it will be cancelled during the week before the start of the trimester. Right At School will remove the child’s registration, and parents will be notified of the cancellation. Payment will be refunded within 7-10 business days.

We allow one risk-free trial class so that your child can determine if the class is a good fit. We think this is fair for both families and our Electives partners. A full refund will be provided if customer service is contacted within the first week of the program. Notification must be received before the commencement of the second scheduled class.

There may be scholarships available in limited amounts in some school programs. Please visit our website and click on your school location for more information on what is available at your local program.

  2. Select the Elecitves tab at the top.

Right At School Electives partners rarely have to cancel a class, but from time to time, it happens due to unforeseen circumstances. In that case, Right At School’s Program Manager will notify parents of the cancellation and keep kids safe and engaged in the Right At School program until they are picked up. We will work with the vendor to schedule a make-up class.

No refunds will be given for programs that are cancelled due to weather, facility issues, school closures, school-dictated unavailability of space, or any other issue beyond Right At School’s direct control.
