Things to Know

  • For full-time and part-time After School Programs, you must register Friday the night before to avoid the late fee. A $10 late fee will be applied to any week day registrations for that current week.
  • All payments are due the Friday before the week of attendance. Failure to pay may result in inability to participate in the program.
  • The YMCA follows Jackson Public School’s Calendar. If JPS has school out days, half-days, or snow days, we will have the corresponding services on those days. This excludes the Paragon after school program.

Financial Assistance Available. Please see the YMCA Front Desk or go to the Financial Assistance page located here on our website. Applications must be submitted two weeks before attendance
