Online registration for the 2018-19 school year for the Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) School Age Child Care (SACC) and Next Generation programs will open April 18 for students currently enrolled, and April 20 for new students. Registration is not automatic; parents must enroll their child each school year. Visit the SACC and Next Generation website for details and registration information.
The SACC program offers before-and after-school options at all elementary schools except Featherstone, Loch Lomond, and West Gate. Next Generation is an after-school program offered at Benton, Bull Run, Hampton, Parkside, Potomac, Reagan, and Woodbridge Middle Schools. Both programs include homework support provided by a licensed PWCS teacher, along with a host of engaging activities focusing on STEM, cultural discovery, literacy, art, drama, music, health, and wellness. SACC and Next Generation are administered by AlphaBEST Education Corporation.
The SACC before-school program opens at 6 a.m. and continues until the beginning of the school day; the after-school program starts when classes are dismissed and ends daily at 6:30 p.m. An all-day SACC program from 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. is offered on teacher workdays at no additional cost for all enrolled SACC students. During winter, spring, and summer breaks, a full-day program is offered at selected elementary schools with a separate registration and cost.
