Pacific Northern Academy provides fun, well-supervised options for before and after-school programs. The Lower and Middle School Extended Day Programs are designed to make early drop off and late pick-up possible for parents. Activities include snack, games, arts and crafts, playground or gym time, and the opportunity for students to do homework.


The Morning Extended Day program runs from 7:00 am to 8:15 am. The Afternoon Extended Day program runs from 3:25 pm to 6:00 pm. All students who are not picked up after school by 3:30 pm are automatically signed into EDP.


The Beginners and Early Kindergarten EDP program use a different Beginners or Early Kindergarten classroom each trimester. During EDP, students will have structured social time and in the afternoon outdoor time and a snack. 


Kindergarten through Eighth Grade students have two room options. In the EDP Room, students can participate in choice and structured activities or they can attend Homework Club for quiet time to complete homework. EDP takes place in various locations during the afternoon including, the gym, play yard, and Makerspace. Both groups will have the opportunity to go outside and eat a snack.


Students in Beginners through 4th Grade may participate in the All-Day EDP program during scheduled no school or half days throughout the year. The All-Day EDP program features themed arts and crafts, games, outdoor or gym time, and snack time. All-Day EDP will not be offered on days that school is canceled due to inclement weather. Create Academy camps will be offered during Thanksgiving, winter and spring breaks.
