What Is Frontiers?
Frontiers is the self-funded, tuition-based, after-school enrichment program serving K4 (where applicable) through sixth grade students enrolled in Rankin County School District (or whose chronological age is 12 as of September 1 of this year). Operating in the school's cafeteria, students stay in their own school with their friends. Frontiers runs from dismissal time at each school until 6 p.m. daily. Frontiers operates on the school calendar and is, therefore, closed for all school holidays and summers. We are also closed for the reduced days in December and May.
OUR GOAL: The primary goal of Frontiers is and has always been to provide a fun, friendly, family-like atmosphere in which children feel safe and secure. We take, very seriously, the trust that parents have shown by placing their children in Frontiers--many of them year after year. We pledge to do our utmost to provide the best possible environment for students in our care. May you find that Frontiers is the perfect fit for your family's after-school care needs.
TYPICAL FRONTIERS DAYS: Frontiers is a structured environment. Although scheduling may vary from site to site across the county, all Frontiers sites feature an afternoon snack, homework time, supervised play, and an extensive Enrichment Curriculum with a different thematic unit each week.
Please do NOT allow students to bring cell phones, iPads, Apple watches, handheld gaming devices, trading cards and/or similar items to Frontiers. Students will be required to keep these items in their back packs or the Site Coordinator will hold then until pick-up. Frontiers nor Rankin County School District will be responsible for loss, damage, or theft of any personal items.
All students are expected to participate in outdoor activities or play unless medical restrictions/limitations are listed on the Parent Contract and/or a doctor's note is on file.
