WE COme. We Play.
At More Than Conquerors we are providing safe places to empower generations.
We run our free after-school activity program for grades 4th-8th in South Madison Community School Corporation schools.
We are a faith based program unaffiliated with the school system, but we welcome all to attend with or without religious background.
We won't push our beliefs on the kids, but we do provide opportunities to learn about Jesus and His love for every one of us. Our program exists to show God's love to all.
Our program is for all 4th-8th graders, Mondays through Thursdays. Middle schoolers start earlier at 2:25pm, then elementary at 3:25pm, and we care for all students until 6pm.
You need to register your student once per school year even if your student has been to MTC before. We may close registration to keep our attendance at a safe and manageable amount.
We start immediately after the dismissal bell rings at the schools.
Elementary & Intermediate program is for 4th-6th graders.
Middle school is for 7th-8th graders.
Middle school begins at 2:25pm but also ends at 6pm.

You can find our program rules here. Our discipline system is giving push-ups. Kids are told the rules and culture of MTC, and we have found having a simple activity-based discipline helps them refocus.
We ask for students' phones to be put away during activities. In 2021, you can stay in your car if you prefer and we will send your students to you.
The program ends at 6:00pm
All guardians are expected to pick up their students by the time program ends. In 2021, you can stay in your car if you prefer and we will walk students to you.
Early pick up is no problem. You only need to register your student once per school year.
In 2021, we are not offering transportation for Maple Ridge or virtual students. Students are allowed to attend, but we are unable to provide transportation.
2021 presents its own challenges, but MTC will continue to focus on
showing God's love first. We ask for patience and grace as we continue navigate this unprecedented time together.

MTC ORGANIZATION CHANGES IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19
Below you will find how MTC is responding to the worldwide pandemic. We are choosing to respond respectfully to the government's authority and recommendations safely, while also in the full knowledge and trust that our God is the ultimate one in control.
We will create a safe space with the resources we have, and trust God to do the rest.
We know none of us, especially kids, are perfect at social distancing every moment.
We don't expect any to be perfect, and won't be harsh to those kids who forget. Due to our high rate of physical activity and eating times our safety focus will primarily be on personal hygiene and fresh air flow - followed then by masks (when mandated) and distance.
We are planning to be outside for as much as possible, doing lessons and
even homework outside, so please dress accordingly when attending.
If you are uncomfortable with our pandemic plan, you have the right to not send your student. We will not have shaming or blaming any who become sick or cause others to quarantine.
At MTC, we understand that illness can happen to any student or family as easily as it can happen to us.
When operating, MTC After-School follows the South
Madison Community School Calendar holiday breaks
during the school year.
This year we may offer special times or elearning spots if
school moves to all online learning.
Joining our email list is the best way to stay updated.
Our Fall 2021 Semester Program will be:
Monday, August 30th, 2021
Thursday, December 16th, 2021
You need to register your student once per school year
even if your student has attended MTC before.
