The mission of the Penn-Kidder Ministerium
After-School Program is focused on providing our children with a safe, secure, faith-based learning environment that offers opportunities for homework
assistance, tutoring, mentoring, recreation, and social activities that meet the
needs of not only the children, but of the community.
The Program is a 501(c)3 Public Charity licensed by the Department of
Human Services that follows the Jim Thorpe Area School District and St. Joseph's Regional Academy Academic
Calendars. PKMASP provides before and after-school supervision for school-aged children K through 8th Grade, Monday through Friday between the hours of 6:00am and 8:15am for before-school care and 3:15 and 6:30pm for after-school care. On Teacher In-Service Days and certain other days during the school year when school is not in session, the PKMASP hours are 6:00am to 6:30pm. Transportation from the Before-School Program and to the After-School Program is provided for students enrolled at L. B. Morris Elementary and St. Joseph's Regional Academy. For students enrolled at Penn-Kidder Campus, transportation to the Before and After-School Program is available.
Multiple-Child Discounts are available through the Program. Childcare Subsidies are available through the Child Care Information Services of Carbon/Monroe Counties to assist those families that qualify with their tuition costs. Please ask the Director for information. Current hourly rate: $4.75/hour (full or part time) and $2.50/hour for each subsequent child. There is a "2-day minimum" for part-time attendance.
