Madison Adventure Club (MAC)
Before & After School Programs

The Madison Adventure Club program provides safe, affordable high quality before and after school care by trained staff for Madison School District students in grades K-8. All school-based MAC programs are licensed by the Arizona Department of Health Services.

The MAC program embraces the concept that high quality before and after school programs can positively support greater engagement in learning and increased academic achievement. Research indicates that after school programs can help students behave better in school, have better work habits, encourage higher educational aspirations, improve attitudes toward school, have a greater sense of belonging in the community, and a better relationship with parents. Based on this, the MAC Program strives to support students to be successful in school, at home and in life.
