Free or Reduced Child Care Fees (CCAP)

The Colorado Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) application is attached for manual completion. The form can also be completed on line at the following link: https://colorado.gov/PEAK

Kindergarten through 5th Grade

VCS will continue the parent benefit of free childcare for Kindergarten through 5th grade students for Monday Care and for the Before and After School Program on Tuesday through Friday. In order for that benefit families must complete the Colorado Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) application, as STARS accepts the CCAP subsidy. All parents that qualify for CCAP need to provide verification in the form of an Authorized Eligibility Notice with the requested location that care is needed. This information is provided to a client through an assigned caseworker upon approval. (You will receive the free benefit even if you do not qualify.)

*Failure to provide an approved authorization for the site where care is needed will result in full price charges.

If a parent/guardian does not complete the CCCAP application, the following fee schedule applies to each student utilizing the MondayCare and Tuesday-Friday Before and After School Care programs:

  • Morning Care 6:30 to 7:30 am – $6 per day
  • Afternoon 3:30 to 6:00 PM – $17 per day
  • MondayCare – 6:30 am to 6:00 PM – $30 per day
  • Maximum cost per family is $35 per day for MondayCare.

Sixth through 8th Grade

Students from sixth through eighth grade can attend the MondayCare and the Tuesday-Friday Before and After School Care programs for a fee based upon the following schedule:

  • Morning Care 6:30 to 7:30 am – $6 per day
  • Afternoon 3:30 to 6:00 PM – $17 per day
  • MondayCare – 6:30 am to 6:00 PM – $30 per day

Application Assistance

Vanguard Classical School will provide assistance in completing the CCAP application. VCS will have tables and computers set up during registration night on July 28, 2022 at which VCS personnel will be available to assist with completion either via paper copy or on line. Parents/Guardians can also receive assistance by visiting the school during summer hours from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.


School Uniforms & Dress Code
