Code of Conduct

Students and parents must understand and agree that proper conduct is necessary so that all students can achieve their goals. 

To insure the quality and fairness to other children who want to benefit from the program, students who are consistently misbehaving will be asked to leave the program. If a student’s behavior is not improved after three warnings, that student will be asked to leave permanently.  We strongly believe that the education of our children is of utmost importance among many parental responsibilities. The after school academy is a place where children can receive the attention and quality education they deserve.

Medical Attention

In the event that emergency medical attention is necessary, the school will endeavor to contact the parents, or if they are unavailable, their family physician.  The school has the right to engage a licensed physician to render such aid, as he may deem necessary for the benefit of the child.

Bring a Snack From Home

Food allergies have been a big concern for us over the past few school semesters. As the frequency of food allergies increase, there is a strong need to ensure no traces of students’ allergens are contained in the snacks we buy.  

Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee our snacks are free of food allergens and/or free from any cross contamination. We kindly ask parents to pack snacks from home from now on, as snacks will no longer be provided. We apologize for the inconvenience.

To extend the learning process and ensure children reach their full learning potential though the utilization of the out-of school hours. All Kids Can Learn has been offering an afterschool academic enrichment program in a distraction free learning environment since 2001.  The children not only get a chance to clarify and crystallize what they are learning at school: they set to work on extra reading, advanced math, newspaper article discussion, historical events research, and various creative projects which go beyond their regular school curriculum. This stimulates their interest in learning and broadens their knowledge and vision.


When children enjoy learning, they show the largest improvement in their grades. At our program we strive to instill an attitude of enthusiasm and curious inquiry.  They understand their efforts and hard work will pay off as they meet their goals.
