The Richmond Neighborhood Center Elementary School After-School Program has a three-step process for application. Please use an email address that you check regularly to apply. For assistance, please email or call (415) 751-6600.

At the Richmond Neighborhood Center we value equity in both our participants and our program offerings. As such, we are not a first-come, first-served program, but we do give high consideration to families that submit their application by the deadline. In reviewing applications we consider gender and grade balance, as well as academic and financial need.

Due to staffing and space limitations we may not be able to provide all applicants a placement in the program. Failure to complete all steps of the registration may also result in placement on the waitlist.


Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Complete application on Configio
  2. Submit income documents for sliding scale tuition

Alamo, Argonne, George Peabody, McCoppin, and Lafayette accept a limited number of Kindergarten–5th grade students. Students must attend the partner schools in order to enroll in The Richmond Neighborhood Center program. If accepted, Kindergarten students enter a three-week trial period to determine if they are able to adjust to the long school day. If they are unable to participate fully, we can evaluate their participation mid-year.

Additionally, The Richmond Neighborhood Center works closely with partner school principals and faculty to identify and assist families. Each year we work with our schools and families to reduce the wait lists at our sites. Families can apply for the Neighborhood Center program by completing an online application (link above).


Payment is due on the 5th of each month. Late payments will be charged an extra fee of 10% of monthly payment. Families who miss one tuition payment will become delinquent in their accounts and will be given a deadline to make these payments in full. Failure to meet this deadline will result in immediate suspension from The Richmond Neighborhood Center program until payments are made.

The Richmond Neighborhood Center strives to keep our tuition costs affordable. Pursuing and processing late payments is detrimental to our resources and takes attention away from our programming. We ask all families to be responsible and submit tuition on time (inquire about our convenient auto-pay options).

If you are interested in qualifying for the sliding scale options, you must include your 2021 income tax return form 1040 or talk to The Richmond Neighborhood Center administration. Be sure to include your medical information. Incomplete applications will not be accepted. If your family is unable to pay the current monthly tuition or feel your monthly rate does not reflect your current financial situation, please contact us. We can work out an arrangement!
