After School Pick Up

banner 5

We currently offer an After School Pick Up service from local public schools to BAX. A BAX staff member will meet your child at dismissal time at their school and escort them to the BAX Building for their after school class(es).  Once at BAX, students do homework, draw, and play games while waiting for their class to begin. Though there is no formal organized programming, students are informally supervised by the BAX front desk and education department staff and faculty. It is our utmost priority to ensure the safety of every student, therefore we can only commit to as many after school pick-ups as we have the staff resources to accommodate. We also consider a range of factors including, but not limited to, student age and wait-times at BAX before class when determining the suitability and sustainability of any pick-up arrangement.

Request BAX After School Pick-Up for the 2018/19 school year by submitting an online APPLICATION.

A pick up is not confirmed until you have received explicit email confirmation and a contract from the Youth Education department. 

BAX will confirm pick-up requests in advance of the start of Fall classes. Participating Fall Semester families will be asked to attend an after school pick-up Family Orientation during the 2018 Fall Open House on Saturday, September 8th, from 12:30-1:30pm at BAX. This will be an opportunity to become familiar with the BAX space, meet pick-up staff, learn about our rules and protocols, and more! If families are not able to attend the Orientation, they will need to set up a meeting with the Education Manager. Spring Semester families will set up an individual Orientation meeting with the Education Manager.

Each year’s schedule is determined by the number of requests at each site on a given day and the availability of BAX staff.

2019 Spring After School Pick Up Schedule:


This schedule is contingent on sufficient student enrollment and staff availability.
Families are welcome to make requests for schools/days not listed on this schedule, and we will try our best to accommodate, staff resources and student enrollment permitting. With the exception of our long-time partner school PS 146 / BNS, we are only able to serve schools within easy walking distance of BAX.

2018/19 Pick-Up Semester Rate:

$125 per student per day (for the entire class term)

(Rates may be adjusted due to special circumstances concerning location of school, etc.)

Financial Aid can be applied to After School Pick-Up services.

After School Pick-Up should be arranged and paid for before the start of a term, and will be for the ENTIRE term, however special arrangements may be provided. Inquire about special arrangements with Ashley R. Thaxton-Stevenson, Education Manager (ashley@bax.org).
