Families with children in more than one program may drop off and pick up their children together.  E.g., a primary student may be dropped off with a sibling in junior high, even though their programs have different start and end times.  Extended care is provided free of charge during the periods in between program pick-up and drop-off for siblings. 

The half-day high school option is optional for juniors and seniors only, and is intended for students in the ACC dual-credit program or in work-study.  Joule also has a full-day high school option available through 12th grade.
