About After School Programs

The S.O.A.R. After School Program is a licensed child care program designed around four components of extended learning opportunities. Meaningful skill development is built around academics, sports and wellness, arts and culture, and community engagement. This safe and inclusive comprehensive program implemented by qualified youth developers, also incorporates healthy snacks daily. Students also have the opportunity to experience two field trips throughout the year. S.O.A.R. is committed to building a healthy after-school community; therefore we ask that students attend program daily.
