After school can be a tough time for students. Students can either get involved in an after-school activity or search for something to do, often ending up playing video games, watching TV, or just being bored. Our After-School Program offers an alternative. We pick kids up from Royal Oak Middle School, Northwood Elementary, and Oak Ridge Elementary and take them to The Salvation Army Community Center. While there, they receive a snack, tutoring & homework help, structured activities and some time just for hanging out in a safe supervised environment.
For more information or to sign up please contact Jeff Rowland at 248 585 5600 ext. 672 or Jeff.Rowland@usc.salvationarmy.org
It's basically a tutoring and latchkey program for Royal Oak Middle School and Oak Ridge Elementary. This program will bus students from school to the SAL Community Center located at 3015 N.

No. ASP is broken into three semesters. However, we do ask that you clarify the semesters desired on the registration form.
The cost of the program is based on how many school days are in the month. Daily rates are available for a semester up request. The program will NOT be open if Royal Oak Schools are closed. On ½ Days we will pick the students up when school gets out at no additional cost. See the registration form below for monthly fees. Please note that there may be 1/2 days that The SAL will be closed.
In the event that a child gets picked up after 6pm, the SAL will charge $1 per minute until the child is picked up. This "fine" will need to be paid before the child attends the next day.

Programs and activities, such as recreational games, tutoring, etc. will serve the purpose for which they were established.

The program will run at a 10-1 student to staff ratio. All staff will have gone through a 3 tier background check, CPR certification and First-Aid Training (all Red Cross certified). The After- School Program is a State of Michigan Licensed program.
The SAL will follow the code of conduct that the Royal Oak schools follow. Example: If a child is not allowed to wear certain clothes at school, they can not wear those clothes at the SAL. The same goes for bullying, profanity, vandalism, etc...
The students will go through an orientation for the program, as a group the first day of the program. Any students joining after that will have the same orientation as soon as schedules allow.
Counselors and staff will help your child complete homework assignments, check planners and communicate with parents about larger school assignments. Our staff likes to be able to check the students Mistar accounts with permission from parents.
PLEASE call the SAL's main office at 248.585.5600 as soon as you know your child will not be coming. This makes pick up school easier.
Please give us an email account or phone/txt number that is readily checked in case of an emergency or other information that needs to be sent out in a timely manner.
