Welcome to our new Extended Center for Learning! We acknowledge your concerns as working parents/guardians who want to find the best after school care for your child. We also recognize and understand the need of our students to socialize and relax after a long day at school. ExCeL was created with our families in mind to be the best of both worlds! Extended Center for Learning offers supervised homework time so families can enjoy the end of the day after pick up plus fun learning activities to help students relax and play in a God-centered environment. Our program will serve as reinforcement of the overall development of each student while supporting the mission of Holy Redeemer Catholic School.

Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment that extends beyond the regular school day. The ExCeL staff will provide each child with learning opportunities that promote confidence, self- pride and a sincere awareness and respect for others.

Through our carefully designed curriculum based learning program, we offer developmentally and age appropriate activities, projects, tutoring, enrichment opportunities, as well as homework support.

We thank you for trusting us with the academic, spiritual and social development of your child. As always, we welcome all suggestions and comments that serve to promote our goals.
