Weekly Activities

Highland Christian School is partnering with YoungLife, Purdue Extension 4-H, and Mr. Neil Pawlowski to provide meaningful after school activities for students enrolled in the After School Program.  Activities will focus on relational discipleship, physical fitness, service, STEM, arts and crafts, cooking and life skills.  Here is an example of the weekly schedule:

  • Monday:  Physical Fitness & Fun!
  • Tuesday:  Young Life (3rd-8th Gr)
  • Wednesday:  4-H (Kindergarten – 2nd Gr)
  • Thursday:  4-H (3rd-8th Gr)

In order for your child to get the most benefit out of this program, please avoid pick-up during the activity hour (3:45-4:45pm).


Families who intend to use BAC on a regular schedule or for more than 10 hours per year, must complete a registration form.  There is a registration fee of $30.00 per family.

Spot Service

Students are welcome to drop in at BAC on occasions when parents find it necessary to use the service:  emergencies, running late, special plan, etc.  Please call the office and let us know!  Spot Service students, accumulating in excess of 10 hours in BAC, will be billed the $30.00 per family registration fee.

Early Drop Off and Late Pick Up

Students arriving before 8:10 am and remaining after 3:30 pm will be cared for in our Before and After School Program.  Parents will be charged in ¼ hr. increments, whether or not we have been notified.  Students accumulating in excess of 10 hours of BAC time will be billed the $30.00 per family registration fee.


Children enrolled in PreK-8th grades are welcome.  Children in PreK-5th grade must be signed in and out by a parent or guardian.  Students in grades 6-8 may sign in and out on their own; however, they will not be released without establishing eye contact with parent or guardian.  After 6:00 pm, the supervision fee will be $1.00 per minute.  Preschool children will need to bring an extra set of clothes (pants, shirt, socks, and underwear) in a zipper bag labeled with their name.  These will be returned at the end of the year.

Payment Policies

Payment must be made by the 15th of the month.  A $5.00 late fee will be assessed for schedules/payments made after this date.  If a family falls more than one month behind in their payments, services will be suspended until payment is made.


The hourly rate for the 2018-2019 school year is $5.50.  Charges will be  assessed on the quarter hour and appear on your next month’s statement.
