MESA After School Program

In the MESA (Miner’s Enrichment and School Age) After School Program at Prospect Ridge Academy, the focus is on fun and free play. Each day, students (K-5th grade) have the opportunity to select among a variety of engaging activities, including arts and crafts, recreation, guided sports and games, and other fun activities.

It is our goal to provide an after school program that is trusted by the parents, and is safe and fun for the students. MESA offers parents a program located in the school, run by the school, following all the rules and policies that students and parents are familiar with. MESA also offers students the opportunity for continued collaboration with teachers and staff after the school day is finished. We strive to nurture each child’s learning development through assisting with homework and projects during our set study hall time. MESA staff takes special care in supervising the students, and we always maintain a student-teacher ratio of 15:1 as required by the State of Colorado. Our staff is dedicated to each and every student’s and parent’s needs in order to create a supportive and positive environment for everyone.
