Part Time Programs: 

At MAGE, we recognize that in Chicago, no academically focused institution offers part-time kindergarten. Developmentally, many children still require a nap at ages 5 and 6. For a variety of reasons, families may wish to continue a part time program beyond 5 years of age, sometimes to supplement a homeschool program, or to allow time for other activities. We recognize that this is especially important for gifted children, who may have maximized their ability to participate in an academic activity after a few hours due to intense concentration during those times. Therefore, we offer several part time options, especially of interest to Kindergarteners:

  • Lunch Plus Program, 5 days a week: 8 AM - 1 PM. The cost of this program is $14,450.00 for all ages. The lunch meal is not included at this time, just the lunch and recess period for socializing.

  • Early Morning 5 days a week: 8 AM - 10:00 AM for 5 and 6 year olds and some homeschoolers. The cost of this program is TBD. This is a math and reading only program with additional play time built in for the younger students depending on stamina.

  • We are not open to a student arriving at school after the start of the day as a regular schedule. This is because we don't want to have to add that disruption to our other students and to our staff at this time.

  • A child in a part-time program who is getting ready to transition to more time in school may shadow 1 day per quarter in the longer-day programs at no extra charge.

  • A child in a part-time program may participate in the same before or after-school free or paid activities as the rest of the students.
