Please note that club prices have been updated on our registration program, but not yet on our website.

I’m Paul McGarr, co-ordinator of the Prep’s After School Program (ASP). Although everything is not yet available on our website, due to popular demand, we wanted to get this information out to you as soon as possible. I welcome feedback from our UCC parents to continue to shape our After School Program to benefit all of our Prep boys to the best of our ability. Here are some highlights of this year’s program:

  • new one-day babysitting certification course for boys 11 to 13 (Oct. 14)
  • Super Elite Football (fall)
  • nutritional snack plans daily (theme days)
  • debating continues
  • quiet time provided for our homework club with CFL-trained and assisted qualified “Ontario Certified Teacher” staff. (Please talk to your boys or form advisers about how to communicate needs for boys to best use this time. ASP staff will gladly support your boys with their homework.)
  • increased intensity, variety and balance of club opportunities throughout the year
  • theme days, including Game Days, Play Days, Arts and Crafts Day and a Movie Day, etc., on top of your club options at no extra fee
  • Form 6/7 Tournament Days (focus days – ball hockey, football, etc.); small fee applies
  • geginner through advanced level robotics, computer programming and coding programs
  • “Chess Kindergarten” curricular program featuring the Chess Institute of Canada and its amazing instructors; groups to be split by ability and knowledge
  • seven highly qualified and energetic staff excited to meet and learn about our boys
  • free trial days (when possible) to experience some of our upcoming club options before you commit to our programs for the term
  • picture boards where our staff will display pictures of your boys in action during club time
  • andmany more exciting things to come
