Academic Coaching- Positive In-person Social Interactions - Engaging Activities

The ZONE is an after-school program exclusively for Edgar Middle School students. We are open from 2:31 to 6 pm every full school day. Our program is closed when there is no school or when there is an early dismissal day. The ZONE program is owned and operated by the Metuchen Board of Education. However, The ZONE program is supported exclusively through the fees we collect. We are not subsidized by the Metuchen Board of Education. To that end, we strive to provide an outstanding after-school program at an affordable price for Metuchen families. This school year there is a big range in the number of school days per month from as little as 13 days in December to 21 for both January and May. The same price per month did not work given the difference in days and its impact on both your and our budget. Our pricing for the 2022 - 2023 school year is reflective of this and varies per month.

  • Reasonable and flexible pricing - Prices for the month of September 2022

    • $324 per month - 5 days a week (A 50% sibling discount is available)
