The SAC Program mission is to provide safe, supportive, and enriching child care during out of school hours. It is our goal to help our students grow academically, socially, and emotionally. This program offers age appropriate learning opportunities, recreational activities, and guidance in building positive interpersonal relationships in a safe environment.
