2019-2020 School Year
After-School Programs begin at the end of the morning program (3:30 p.m.) and end at 5:00 p.m. Classes begin on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 and end in mid-May (date to be announced in a timely manner). After-school athletics programs are operated by the Deree College Athletic Club.
Registration is completed electronically (Registration Form) during the month of September. Anyone who does not register in time may apply after the After-School Programs have begun operating, provided there are spaces available. Participation in Athletics Activities requires the submission of a Medical Certificate during the first week of the program. Please note that the Health Form that is submitted for the morning program does not fulfill the requirement for participation in these activities.
TUITION FEES & PAYMENT
The annual fees for after-school programs are available here. The total amount of tuition fees is due upon registration at the beginning of the program.
Payment for After-School Athletics Programs can be made either by direct deposit into the Deree College Athletic Club account (ALPHA BANK IBAN: GR34 0140 4290 4290 0200 2003 006, NATIONAL BANK OF GREECE IBAN: GR49 011018000000 180 001 10454), or by credit card, or in cash at the Pierce Cashier’s Office.

Payment for After-School Educational Programs (e.g. B Lyceum supplementary classes, IB DP Foundation Year) should be made to the Pierce account along with the payment for the morning program, according to the payment deadlines already in effect.
There is no charge for After-School Clubs and Academies.
INTERRUPTION OF ATTENDANCE AT AFTER-SCHOOL ACTIVITY
In the event that attendance is interrupted, parents must inform the After-School Program Secretary immediately and in writing via email. In the event that the Secretary is not informed, the student is considered to be attending regularly. If the interruption is not declared in writing during the first month from the start of each class, the total amount is due.
CHANGE OF ACTIVITY / CHANGE OF DAY OF PARTICIPATION IN AN ACTIVITY
Anyone who wishes to change activity must communicate in writing with the After-School Program Secretary. Changes in activities may be made during the first month from the start of classes. In the event that there is a change in the days of a student’s participation in an activity, the parent must notify the After-School Program Secretary in writing.
NOTIFICATION OF ABSENCE
In the event that a student is absent from an after-school activity, the parents will receive an SMS on their mobile phones, regardless of whether the student was in attendance or absent from the morning program. Clubs that operate on Saturdays and Academies are exempt from this notification, as the faculty advisors in charge of them are responsible for coordinating these activities.
After-School Program buses leave the school at 5:10 p.m. and there are six (6) routes. Please see the routes and stops here. Stops other than the ones specified may be made only along main roadways which each bus passes. Parents must inform their child in advance of the bus stop they should disembark, so that the child knows it well and can tell the driver. Parents must also be at the stop on time to receive their child. Parents can follow the position and speed of the school bus in real time with the “Position recording system, via GPS.” Access instructions can be found here. The annual fees for the after-school buses can be found here. For students that make full, daily use of school buses (100%) or use them only for their return (75%), there is no additional charge for the after-school buses. For students that choose an after-school Club or participate in an after-school Academy and do not make daily use of a school bus, there is a fee for the use of an after-school bus only on the specific days that they attend the Club/Academy. To make use of an after-school bus, please declare the bus route you desire electronically on the Registration Form. For any change in after-school bus route, please contact the After-School Program Secretary.
EXIT PASS FOR DEPARTURE BY STUDENT’S OWN MEANS
The parents of students that wish to depart by their own means and do not have a Permanent Exit Pass will have to inform the Secretary in writing so that they can be issued an exit pass for use at the end of after-school classes. Departure before the end of the program requires written permission from the parent, addressed to the After-School Program Secretary.
