The Bergen Family Center provides a high quality after school program for Quarles and Grieco children. We have a highly credentialed staff with a certified teacher and an experienced counselor in each classroom. In addition to homework support, BFC will provide enrichment activities including chess, stem related activities, performance and fine arts, photo-journalism, and much more. Homework hour will begin at 4pm after students have had a snack and free time. One hour will be allotted for homework. Homework may not be completed for students picked up prior to 5pm. We will have tutors available to help students who need extra help and/or additional time each day.
Please note the following:

Drop off & Pick up: Grieco students will be escorted to the Cafeteria by their classroom teachers and received by BFC counselors upon dismissal.
