Holy Cross Ministries

Program description

Holy Cross Ministries focuses on making an impact on youth developmental assets that help young people grow up healthy, caring, and responsible; which ultimately leads to better academic gains. The After-School Programs provide enrichment activities designed around academic topics that place a strong emphasis on teamwork, hands on learning, discussion, and engagement.

Program Details

  • Holy Cross Ministries has been providing out-of-school-time opportunities for at-risk children in Summit County since 2000; the Park City After-School Program is a continuation of that commitment to serve the students in our community.
  • In collaboration with the Park City School District, Holy Cross Ministries provides students at Jeremy Ranch Elementary School, McPolin Elementary School, and Parley’s Park Elementary School with academic and enrichment programming Monday through Thursday from 3:00-6:00pm and Fridays from 12:30 - 6:00pm during the academic year.
  • Daily program activities include homework help, academic support, enrichment activities, physical education, and a healthy snack. 
  • The Park City After-School Program is coordinated through Park City Community Education, Park City Education Foundation, Promise Park City and Holy Cross Ministries and is staffed with fully qualified, trained specialists who follow national after-school standards.

Help Support Our Students

Holy Cross Ministries' role in the Park City After-School Program partnership is to ensure that these educational and enrichment opportunities are available to all students. We believe that cost should not be a barrier for children to learn and grow. Please help support our program so we can continue offering scholarships to low-income families.
