Our kindergarten through 5th grade programs combine a focus on fun activities with literacy development, in a setting that emphasizes social-emotional growth.
Tutor counselors and specialists support students during the 3-hour activity intensive after school period. Children rotate from homework assistance, to literacy, to sports or arts activities. Similar to all New York Edge programs, the elementary school model provides weekend and holiday experiences. Many programs include a special 10-hour holiday schedule which supports the many working families in New York City and surrounding communities. Programs may also include enrichment experiences in coding, computer technology, STEAM and other projects that stimulate learning.
