How long has AlphaBEST been around?

AlphaBEST Education was founded in 2005.

Is AlphaBEST open on days school is closed?

We often do offer care on days school is closed (including Fall, Winter, and Spring Break camps in many of our schools). Please check your district’s specific calendar (select your district on our Locations page) to learn whether these care days exist for your child. If your child’s school is closed due to weather or other unpredictable issues, AlphaBEST will likely not operate, either.

When are payments due?

If your district operates on a weekly payment scheduled, tuition payments are due every Monday through our online payment system. If your district operates on a monthly payment schedule, tuition payments are due the first Monday of each month through our online payment system. We do not accept personal checks.
