Extension Program

Extension Program 

The St. Mel School Extension Program is an after school program designed to meet the needs of busy families. Our goal each day is to provide a safe, healthy, and positive atmosphere and compliment your child’s needs after the regular school day in a consistent faith-filled environment. The Extension Program shadows the school’s policies, procedures, and calendar. This program is offered to all children enrolled in St. Mel Catholic School in grades TK through Eight Grade. The curriculum and daily schedule of events is designed to complement the philosophy and value system of the school and families.

We are open on the days the school is holding classes, including minimum days. We are closed on holidays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter vacations, and Teacher In-service Days. Typically, there are three scheduled Teacher In-service Days during the school year.

Students have the ability to attend on-campus activities such as choir, band, baton, scout meetings, yearbook, athletic events, sports practices, and academic meetings and are able to come to Extension before and after the activity. This provides continuity and safety in the student’s day and peace of mind for parents!

We are a branch of St. Mel School, therefore, we adhere to the same philosophies, rules, and regulations as stated in the School Parent-Student Handbook.


The Extension Program has an “OPEN DOOR” policy. Please feel free to drop by and see us in action or contact us at (916) 967-3105 or extension@stmelschool.org.

All visitors must sign in to the school office and are issued a visitor badge. 

Extension Registration Forms and Fees

The Extension program continues to offer several payment plans in an effort to accommodate the various scheduling needs of students in grades TK through Eight. St. Mel Extension is self-sustaining and parent fees are its sole support.
