Home Away from Home
We offer quiet spaces for students to relax and read or do homework in a location without distractions.
Upper School students join us in Extended Care and provide a lovely addition to our Stuart Sacred Heart experience. A strength of the Extended Care program is the opportunity for students to have enrichment classes with their friends at Stuart while under the direction of carefully chosen specialized teachers. We provide a smooth transition to classes in the arts, literature, STEM, sports and chess. Parents can depend upon our caring, safe environment at the end of every day.
When classes are not in session, Vacation Camp is available to children in the Early Childhood Program, girls in JK–4, as well as friends from outside of Stuart. Cost per day is $70 for the hours of 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM and pre-registration is required.
Vacation Camp Dates for 2018–2019
Camp dates will be forthcoming. June Vacation Camp days are also StuArts Camp.
Vacation Camp is run by our Extended Day staff so there are lots of familiar faces and lots of fun. Special activities and treats are always in the works—rain or shine! Vacation Camp is based out of the Extended Day Home Base but we use all of Stuart's facilities as needed.
