Generations of inner city working families have turned to Ellis for safe, academically enriching out-of-school time options for their students in elementary and middle school. Today, our School-Age Program enrolls over 130 students a year in grades K through 8 at program sites in Roxbury and the South End.
After-school programming includes an hour of homework supervision/assistance, a healthy snack, and time to talk about what’s going on at school, at home, in sports, in the news, and more. Students then spend an hour attending one of three different clubs each week -- clubs they have chosen according to their interests, curriculum and age groups.
During summer and school vacations, this is a full-day program with daily field trips around Boston and beyond, soccer, tennis, lacrosse, cooking, dance, music, reading competitions and activities in support of maintaining academic year gains and avoiding “summer learning loss.”
