Ivy League is an exceptional program. I am so happy that we were able to take advantage of the assistance for many years now. We look forward to our future with the programs and staff. Have a lovely summer and may God Bless the Ivy League Program and all of the Staff.
Ivy League Before and After School
The Ivy League Kids Before and After School Program offers quality programming that focuses on fitness, recreation, and academic enrichment in a healthy, safe environment to all students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. We are committed to providing a fun-filled, rewarding program that enriches the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual development of school-age children and their families to the fullest potential in order to improve their quality of life.

New to Ivy League Kids?
Before and After School
Give your child a safe, supportive, and fun place to go outside of school hours. We structured programming to enrich their education.
After School Clubs
Let your child explore their interests with Cooking, STEM, Sports and Art clubs at our Mokena Rec Center.
Parties / Rentals
Birthday parties at the air-conditioned Rec Center are a blast! You relax as we plan the party, help set up, supervise the activities, and do the cleanup.
Sports & Recreation
Some of our favorite activities include basketball, dodgeball, tag, and skill-building activities. Sports encourage teamwork and fair play while teaching kids valuable lessons in cooperation and respect for others.
Arts & Crafts
Students do a variety of arts and crafts as an outlet to be creative and have fun. Imagination is encouraged through a variety of different types of hands-on activities.
We understand that homework is vital to academic success. Students receive homework help and mentoring with a dedicated space and time for schoolwork at our sites.
(Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)
Think. Inspire. Dream. Create.
We are excited to announce that we are now incorporating STEM education during our after school programming. What is STEM? STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education. STEM curriculum is driven by problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning, and requires students to actively engage a situation in order to find its solution.
Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders. Occupations in STEM-related careers are some of the fastest growing and best paid of the 21st century, and they often have the greatest potential for job growth. Building a solid STEM foundation through a well-rounded curriculum is the best way to ensure that students are exposed to math, science, and technology in their early educational career.
My daughter really enjoyed the STEM lab. I hope to see it again next year and other activities like it.
It is important that let you know that my boys and I are tremendously pleased with the care that my boys receive from the after school program at McAuliffe school. Miss Carmen and Mr. David are both extremely friendly, fun, creative and caring. I could go on and on! As a working parent, this makes life so much easier to see my children happy. Both care takers are always smiling and thoughtful. When I hear them talk, it is always about the kids. They show care and love for all of the kids there. I know that there are many more that contribute to this organization but when I get to Ivy League at 6:30 am, they are the first smiling faces I see which sets the rest of my day in a positive light. Their efforts must be recognized.
