STAR Program

Canyon offers childcare and special NOVA enrichment services through STAR Inc. These services include after school childcare, intramural sports programs, and NOVA Enrichment classes. There is a fee for STAR.

STAR's objective is to offer fun, creative, educational and enriching programs for children during the after-school hours. STAR provides a structured after-school program for grades K – 5. Here is a more detailed description of the STAR offerings:

After School Care with STAR
Five days a week until 2:45pm for kindergartners and until 6:00p.m. for 1-5th graders. We provide a wide variety of programs that range from art, sports, Homework Club, cooking, and literacy. We also provide a daily snack for grades K-5.

Intramural Sports Programs
The STAR sports teams are organized and run by STAR., Inc at Canyon Charter.  The vision was to create intramural sports teams at the elementary school level.  Each team is formed around a good representation of the Canyon student body. We run and coordinate a soccer team in the fall and a basketball team in the spring.

STAR Enrichment Classes
We offer a large variety of enrichment programs called NOVA classes, which begin in September, November, January and April. These seven or eight week classes include courses in dance, sports, languages, drama, science, art, and theater, depending on the interests expressed by the Canyon Community. 

School Break Childcare
Designated STAR sites provide all-day childcare during breaks from school. Please inquire two weeks prior to these events for registration and location information.
