After-School Program


ASP in-person registration for the

2023-2024 school year will open May 30!

Registration stays open until we reach our capacity.

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 students up from Oak Ridge Elementary, Northwood Elementary, and ROMS and take them to The SAL. 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

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 assist your child with 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.
