P.S. 69

Program Description

After School Achievement Club has an 18 year old history of helping students take early steps to college. We succeed because we understand that students cannot stay high energy 6 hours of school during the day and follow that with 4 more hours of study. We blend homework help with a good meal, drama with 2 shows per year, School spirit activities to add some excitement, teacher led projects in every class based on exciting ideas in science, geography, culture… and fun on the playground!

The After School program is available for students in Kindergarten through 5th grades. We are open Monday to Friday until 7:00 pm in two locations: at the Community Church and at Public School 69 in Jackson Heights.

Our program goals are:

    • To assist all students academically by establishing healthy study skills and reinforcing the importance of homework completion.
    • To cultivate a meaningful partnership with every student and parent through daily communication to maximize student development.
    • To build students’ confidence, self-control, and social skills to foster their academic success.
    • To increase students’ positive attitude towards learning and school life.

Trained staff members help students complete their daily homework accurately and efficiently. Students engage in literacy activities for 20-30 minutes as homework is completed. In addition, a snack or meal is provided for students every day. Once students have completed their homework, they will participate in a variety of exciting, creative activities. These activities include drama, art, outdoor recreation, interest clubs, science, contests, and more!

Parent Review

“82nd Street Academics is like family to us. Given that our families are geographically distant, it’s important that we offer our children a loving and caring community. We found this in 82SA. Our two children have been enrolled for the past 7 years. We started with the Pre-K program and have consistently received after school services since. 82SA not only provides a stimulating academic curriculum and nurturing environment, they have also been incredibly responsive and flexible in identifying and working with our children’s individual intellectual, social, and emotional needs. We value and respect 82SA and give back in all ways we can.” – Susanna Jones & Ron Hayduk, Legacy Family Since 2008
