Club J After School Program

Club J – After school care and enrichment program for grades K-5 and 6-8

When the school day is done, Club J begins with an after school program that is the best around! Club J is designed for families that need the support and convenience of a high quality daily after school schedule for their children.

Club J Offers Many Options

Enrichment Classes

All of our instructors are educators in their field of specialty and work to develop a curriculum for each enrichment class, bringing their dynamic knowledge to the children through teaching art, science, drama, sports, cooking, homework and more! Individual enrichment classes may also be purchased for the 8-week session.

Homework Periods

Drop into our homework periods to get a head start on assignments. College graduates maintain a quiet and supervised environment while overseeing self-motivated students who wish to get their homework done.

Teen Transportation

Club J’s bus will provide pick-up for 6th graders who need a way to get to the J. Come hang out in the teen center, or be a part of Club J’s Teen Leadership Connection for 6th-8th graders and gain hands-on group leadership experience. Flat rate bus fee of $84/month.

We are proud to provide programming for students of Newport Coast, Tarbut V’Torah and Vista Verde. *Bus transportation from NCE is provided at an additional cost. All Club J participants and all JCC members who are enrolled in 3:45 p.m. classes will be picked up at school.

Important note for Newport Coast
Due to the 2:25 p.m. dismissal for K-3rd graders, 3red graders will have their own programming at school with a Club J counselor while the bus loops back to the school. Students will have the opportunity to play games, start homework and enjoy snacks with their counselor.

*If your child’s school is not listed, please contact us. We will make every effort to provide transportation or set up a non-transportation fee.


We provide a healthy, certified Kosher snack (such as celery, apples, oranges) each day. Please do not send your child with non-Kosher items to campus.
