BAS for the 2022/23 school year is now on a waitlist.


 Registering your child for their school’s AM and/or PM program will add them to their school’s wait list and not directly into program. After completing the registration students will be added chronologically at the bottom of their school’s waiting list and will be contacted as there is space available. Wait list times will vary from location to location. Some programs do have space and others may be on a longer wait list. For specific information about availability please use the contact emails below for your school’s district.
