The mission of the Before/After School Care Program is to provide a safe, caring and structured environment for Star of the Sea students before and after school hours. As directed by the Office of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Richmond, Star of the Sea Before/After School Care Program operates as a Religious Exempt Program under the Department of Social Services (DSS). Documentation is filed yearly with the DSS in order to verify compliance with building, health and safety regulations. All staff members complete background checks and VIRTUS training.
