Each new family at Aurora will be assigned a buddy family in June. This current Aurora family will be available to answer any questions that you may have and to help welcome your child to Aurora School.
Extended Care Program
The Extended Care Program at Aurora serves students who need before and/or after school care. There is no need to register in advance for Extended Care. You will receive more information about this program with our August mailing. Questions regarding payment options and other information can be answered on our Extended Care FAQs page. The Director, Josh Johnson is always happy to answer your questions.
School Break Camps
Aurora offers camps and mini-camps during school vacations. Our camps are offered to current Kindergarten through 5th grade students and are also open to the public. Get a glimpse into the fun-filled School Break Camps that your child can be a part of next year!
