Payment Options

Dear Parents/Guardians,

PKA has two options for attendance, two day and full time.

One option is 2 days per week for one session for $100. 

You must select your two days when you register and students cannot be switched to other days. 

The second option is for full time with a $200 fee to cover the cost of the entire session which spans 6 to 8 weeks.  

The price is the same whether a student attends three, four or five days a week.

We offer several methods of payments to help working families budget for this, including paying in full with your registration, two monthly payments and five weekly payments. 


In addition to the flat fee payment, we have a co-op program whereby parents can volunteer in lieu of payment.   

There are many ways volunteers can help. Site coordinators will work with each parent to find the volunteering opportunities that are mutually beneficial. 

Below are just a few ways that adults can volunteer at PKA.  

  • Support the existing PKA program.
  • Plan, teach and provide materials for a PKA enrichment session.
  • Plan, teach and provide materials for a parent information session.
  • Plan or assist at a PKA fundraising event.
  • Assist during an PKA evening event.
  • Provide childcare for a PKA event.
  • Volunteer with your PTA.
  • Volunteer at your school.

A student may attend PKA for one session full time, if an adult volunteers 16 hours during that session, and a student can attend two days a week if an adult volunteers for 8 hours.

Only parents are allowed to volunteer for current sessions. If parents fail to fulfill their barter agreement we will require the full payment of all appropriate fees. 

It is recommended that anyone interested in participating in the co-op program has a discussion with the site coordinator a minimum of two weeks before the session starts and prior to filling out the application, as approval is contingent upon your proposal's feasibility, suitability and current scheduling availability.

Anyone wishing to donate their time so that another student may attend PKA is welcome to do so.  The donation of time must be completed in a session prior to the student attending.  Donation of time can occur over multiple sessions but will not be carried over into succeeding school years. Volunteers cannot “work off” past due bills.

In the event of an emergency:

If your child has been registered in PKA during this school year and if you receive approval from the PKA staff in advance (as well as notify your school of this change before 10:00 a.m. the day of attendance), your child may attend PKA for an individual afternoon for a fee of $5 per afternoon.

We make every effort to maintain the level of service and programming as in past years.  Your feedback is important.  If you have any questions, concerns, or comments on our program, we would love to hear from you.
