School-Age Program

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.”
 
 
Current School-Age Program Rates

$25 Part-time (after school)

A limited number of subsidized slots, based on income, are available through the MA Department of Early Education and Care.

*******************************

We had a fun day out at the zoo! We hosted Ellis families at the Franklin Park Zoo on Saturday, November 4th for a special tour and visit with the animals. Family engagement is an important part of our programs as we strive to connect our families to each other, our staff, and the greater community.
