St. Paul’s Catholic School Backpack Program is an affordable before- and after-school care program for working parents.


Convenient Hours

Backpack is open from 7:00 AM to 11:00 AM and from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM on school days during the academic school year (August-May).

Backpack hours work well with demanding work schedules.

Backpack is available throughout the school year, with the exception of school holidays (for example, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Break, and Spring Break).

There is also an optional Summer Program for currently enrolled students.



Your children will be in a safe environment, receive help with homework, and enjoy playtime with their friends both indoors and outdoors.



Hourly and monthly rates are available for Backpack services depending on a family’s needs.


Safe Location

The Backpack room is located on the north side of the school building closest to the old church. There is an external door where students are to be dropped off and picked up. Students will only be released to persons identified in writing on Backpack registration forms.
