Programs

After School and Advocacy Program (ASAP): At least 60 children, grades K-4, spend seventeen hours each week receiving supplemental instruction for 33 weeks during the 2013-2014 school year and for 35 hours per week for six weeks during the summer months. Our curriculum supports DCPS standards in reading, math, and science. Students also receive homework assistance, engage in character building activities, work one-on-one with a tutor as needed, participate in art, yoga, karate and gardening workshops, and read individually with a volunteer Reading Buddy. Adolescents Building Literacy through Expression (ABLE): At least 40 middle and high school students, grades 5 -12, spend fourteen hours each week after school and 35 hours a week in the summer for six weeks in programs designed to enrich and enhance their reading, writing, speaking, math, and science skills. Additional components offered this 2013-2014 school year include Visual Arts, Digital Literacy, College and Career Exploration, High School Transition Support, Karate, Yoga, and Dance.
