    Fine Arts 

Our curriculum includes weekly classes in music, ballet, tap and theater. Participants have the opportunity to select which fine arts class(es) they wish to enroll. Each fine arts course includes all supplies, costumes, and materials specific to the course. Fine arts courses integrate academics and conclude in a grand year end performance.

Academic Support

We go beyond homework help. Our staff work with each participant’s classroom teacher to address each student’s area of weakness. We develop a unique After school Program Individualized Education Plan (AP-IEP). We use this AP-IEP to create and support academic goals throughout the year. Our staff contact classroom teachers twice monthly (at minimum) to ensure participants are on target in the completion of their academic goals. (Depending upon their AP-IEP goals some participants may spend more time in our academic courses than others).  


Sports 

One of our goals is to develop programming that will introduce youth to the world beyond their neighborhood. Each participant is introduced to the sport lacrosse. Throughout the school year, lacrosse tournaments are played between teams at neighboring sites. Baseball, tennis, volleyball, and golf are all taught as well. While we provide an open gym session when participants are free to play basketball, our goal is to teach sports beyond basketball.

Evidence-based Curriculum: 

Life skills course are taught each week using among others, the “Forward Thinking” curriculum. This curriculum is used to help at risk youth navigate a range of emotions. Based upon the initial assessment and interview, some participants will spend more time in life skills classes than others.
