Forsyth School_Extended Day

Extended Day programs at Forsyth encompass those hours before school from 7:00–8:00am (Before Care) and after school from 3:30–6:00pm (After Care), plus After-School Classes, League Sports, and childcare on "no-school" faculty work days.

How We Charge

There is no minimum or long-term commitment for Extended Day. This year's new fee structure includes an annual $50 registration fee per student, plus $8 per hour of actual usage, rounded up to the next hour. Late pick-ups incur a $16 charge per half hour. After Care begins at 3:00pm on Thursdays for Early Dismissal at no additional charge (3:00–3:30pm only).

Our Structure

After Care begins with attendance and a snack before students are sent off to any scheduled activities, including sports practices with set weekly practice days for each grade. Any students not signed up for a scheduled activity play outside (weather permitting) or gather in classrooms or the Rand Center. After Care ends with a small second snack before final pick-ups.

Who Stays

Unlike many other elementary schools, Forsyth kids like to stay after school—and most of them do! On average, 150 kids stay for After Care—playing sports, taking band or music lessons, studying in the library, taking After-School Classes, and playing outside on the playgrounds. Forsyth's unique campus gives the After Care experience a neighborhood feel!

After-School Classes

Unfortunately, Forsyth's After-School Classes remain currently suspended due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. Regular offerings include study hall, science, tennis, martial arts, dance, yoga, running, math, chess, and more, plus Girls on the Go and Girls on the Run programs. Additional fees apply.

League Sports

Forsyth participates in the Clayton Recreation League; offerings include soccer, girls volleyball, basketball, T-ball, baseball, and softball. Practices are held after school at Forsyth; games are held at the Center of Clayton or Charles A. Shaw Park. Students in Pre-Kindergarten and Junior-Kindergarten can participate in soccer skills clinisc with St. Louis Scott Gallagher at Forsyth. Additional fees apply.

Our Staff
A great staff makes all the difference! Forsyth's Extended Day staff is carefully selected, trained, and guided to provide the most competent and compassionate care for Forsyth children. They make sure all students get to their scheduled activities and that each day of After Care runs smoothly. Contact Deborah Lomax, Director of Extended Day, with any questions.
