Registration for the 2022-2023 School Year Opens in May

The A.E. Finley YMCA has 2 After School programs that serve Magellan Charter School.  Space is limited.

  1. Onsite at Magellan: This program meets in the Magellan multi-purpose room and also uses the gym and outdoor space.  Parents can pick up anytime between school dismissal and 6:00 p.m. Due to space constraints, this program is capped at 25 participants. Only 5-day weekly options available for this program.  This program will fill very quickly so ensure your online account is prepared and ready for registration!
  2. Finley Good Times After School: This program meets just down Baileywick Road at the A.E. Finley YMCA.  A YMCA bus will transport students at school dismissal, and parents can pick up at the A.E. Finley YMCA until 6:00 p.m. This program utilizes a wide variety of Y spaces-fields, outdoor pavilions, gym, multi-purpose rooms and more. If needing partial week care, you will register for this program. This program is capped at 14 participants.

Registration for both programs opens on May 2 for YMCA Members, and May 9 for program participants (non-Y members). Please ensure you are registering for the correct program at Magellan OR at Finley.  Use this link to access both programs.

If you have questions about your account, creating your account, or have issues with registration, please contact or 919-719-9989.  We now no longer do in person registrations at the front desk of the A.E. Finley YMCA.

Please note:

  1. YMCA members get a priority registration window and also receive a discount on the monthly cost. If you are interested in becoming a Y member, check here for our options!
  2. Online registration will open on May 2nd (Y Members) or 9th (non-members).  Onsite at Magellan will only offer full week (5-day) option.  If looking for less than 5 days per week, you will need to register for Finley Good Times.


The YMCA Programs at Magellan operate independently of The Magellan Charter School.  The YMCA program is designed to offer after school childcare in a fun, supervised environment to Magellan students at a moderate cost.

We offer a Y program onsite at Magellan with limited slots, as well as an offsite program at the nearby A.E. Finley YMCA with busing available.

Please contact the Finley YMCA for registration information on the Y Afterschool program.
