After School Achievement Club

Available translations in Español, Bangla, Tibetan, and Chinese.

Thousands of parents turn to After School choices when their student is not getting all the services that they need to flourish. We hear many of these concerns at 82nd Street Academics and have shaped our programs around three parent questions that are most frequent.

  1. How can I find a safe After School program while I work?
  2. How can my child get their homework done and corrected and do better in school?
  3. I want more Enrichment after school and organized play instead of coming home to computer and TV.

  • Home Day Care is a popular option after school. A kindly mother is home and offers to pick up your child as well as her own. Unfortunately, those good intentions lead many families to unpleasant consequences. Electrical extension cords, blocked exits, and all the other problems of unlicensed are never considered until its too late. Most school age home day care providers are sincere people who never considered safety issues that are basic to any licensed center. The foundation of after school is

    1. Safe against intruders
    2. Safe exits in emergency
    3. Care for allergies
    4. Red Cross training
    5. No building code or Department of Health problems
    6. Clean and sanitary

    At 82nd Street Academics, we know that safety comes first.

    1. Our classroom perimeter is locked and alarmed
    2. We have regular inspections by the Department of Health
    3. All staff are fingerprinted and rechecked every two years
    4. All staff take training every two years on protecting children from abuse
    5. All students are offered allergy protection as needed
    6. Camera access is available at 8110 and Highland campuses

  • The sad truth is that New York City generally has excellent teachers and principals but twice as many students as they can handle. With student:teacher ratios ranging from  25:1 – 40:1, public schools labor to do too much with too little. After School programs often ignore academic development. It’s understandable because no one expects After School programs to hire certified teachers or simply expand the school day. Meanwhile, homework continues to increase as teachers labor to prepare students for NYS exams. Parents end up with a dilemma.

    Which After School Achievement Club solves in 3 ways

    Home Work Completion – 82nd Street Academics has the best track record with homework completion and correction for the past 15 years. After a short time to gather and meet friends, we tackle homework together –  20:1  students to teacher, we have the extra time to answer questions and check homework.

    7 Social Emotional Skills for High School Success – Our success continues with 7 Social Emotional skills that we work with students to develop :

    1. Personal Responsibility
    2. Optimistic Thinking
    3. Goal Directed Behavior
    4. Social Awareness
    5. Self Awareness
    6. Self Management
    7. Decision Making

    Studies show that these 7 skills will prepare students to enter high school with confidence, skills, and determination to finish projects and homework without parent pressure.

    Evidence Based Thinking Practice – We are developing teachers with the CLASS system from the University of Virginia to respond to students in After School with projects and discussion which requires students to practice finding evidence and making arguments. This is Exactly where so many students struggle with the Common Core tests.

    We add hot meals and plenty of ways to keep students motivated as well! Your child deserves the best Academic Development for After School and its After School Achievement Club at 82nd Street Academics. Come in today for a tour. Call 718 457 0429 !

  • Many parents want their child to experience enrichment and fun after school. Some parents are working and need a quality experience and other parents have seen students power down at home and want something more productive.

    Research also shows that

    • Students without periods of play, physical activity, and the arts – those students also perform lower academically. Humans are built to combine creativity and discovery and that balance of art and learning has to be maintained.
    • We see from Howard Gardner’s 7 intelligences that children who do not learn in mathematical or reading intelligences are less likely to be served by public education. Those same children may excel in those ways if they use music, art, dance, or physical activity as a doorway. A child who loves art may suddenly want to know the biography of a favorite artist which is a doorway to literacy.
    • Since the goal of After School should be high school preparation (and college beyond), the arts are a valuable way in which students feel and study their emotions and those of others. Drama is only one example of an activity that combines art with emotion.


    82nd Street Academics is a leader in play and enrichment.

    • The 81-10 site has a world class playground for After School students
    • Curricula and staff for drama and dance ensure that this is a weekly activity for the PS 69 and 8110 programs. There is a show at the end of the program year!
    • Teacher led activities in the classroom involve science and technology which act as a magnet for students. Topics change monthly.

    Homework
    Our goal is that all homework that is completed at 82nd Street Academics is free of errors and is 100% correct. Our staff will supervise your child during homework time, help her if she is having trouble, and check all work for completion and accuracy. Since academic success is a joint effort, we work with students to help them understand the importance of homework because we need their cooperation to meet our goal. We also ask that all families drop off and pick up their children at a time that allows for completion of homework.

    Your child’s Lead Teacher will inform you if there is homework that is required to be completed at home rather than at the After School Achievement Club. You will also be notified whenever homework is going home incomplete. In order to facilitate this, we ask that you come into the classroom to pick up your student and speak to the teacher if necessary. If your child does walk home alone, please take a moment to go over his or her homework with to review what was completed.

    Parent/ Staff Communication
    The Lead Teacher in the classroom will give you a weekly update on your child’s progress in the areas of social and academic skills. You will also receive a weekly e-mail from your child’s teacher about activities and events in the program.

    We will take special care to address your child’s academic needs if you inform us of areas in need of improvement. Regular communication with your child’s teacher is necessary for success.

    Student Responsibility
    Students are expected to make a good faith effort every day to complete their homework. Students should bring all of the necessary materials to do so. All students are required to maintain a Homework Notebook where all assignments are written daily. Students will occasionally have homework assignments that are based on in-class activities. To complete these tasks, students are expected to pay attention in school and have the necessary information to complete follow up assignments in the After School program. Our staff members are dedicated to students’ academic success and will make every effort to complete all daily homework assignments. However, long term assignments (such as dioramas and large essays) must be completed at home. Finally, we rely on students to be honest about their assignments in order to build a relationship of trust with their After School instructors, their school teachers, and their parents.

    Meet the Parents!

  • 1. Homework Help – Students’ first activity for the day is to complete their homework. It is checked by trained group leaders for neatness and correct answers. Our goal is to ensure that students understand the material that they are completing and develop study habits that they will use throughout their academic career.

    2. Enrichment (Drama and Clubs) – Enrichment activities help students engage their creative thinking skills and interact with their classmates in new ways. These classes encourage students to actively participate in the planning process to choose how they will spend their afternoon. Enrichment classes boost students’ confidence levels and students’ ability to express themselves.

    3. Teacher Led Activities – Teachers plan activities that incorporate the Common Core Learning Standards to build their skills in self-expression and knowledge of arts and crafts, science, community building, and health/safety.

    4. School Spirit Activities – Theme days and school wide contests (such as Class Colors Day and our Reading Contest) provide time for students and staff to have fun together. Students build a sense of community and group identity through these events. Our Theme Coordinator works to plan and execute each activity.

    5. Literacy Activities – On a daily basis, each student participates in an age-appropriate literacy activity. Some classes include group reading of a chapter book or a class book followed by discussion and reflection.

    6. Family Style Meals – Each class serves a full supper at 4:00pm each day. The P.S. 148 program will begin the year with snack. Students sit together at tables with staff and eat as a group. Staff prompt conversations among students to help them relax and discuss their daily experiences.

    7. Outdoor Recreation – Students always look forward to time on our playground! This time is completely physical and allows students to run around and let out any pent-up energy. This activity promotes physical health, and also allows students to concentrate more easily during difficult homework assignments.
