Extended Day Program for Kids
When the school day ends, the adventure begins
Putting Safety First
We take extra measures to ensure your children are safe while attending our program.
The After School Zone Academy is a community based extended day program, committed to taking a leadership role in child care services and direct its activities toward student success.
Homework is an important aspect of our after school program for students, and our staff work our kids, and their parents to ensure the children complete their homework Monday - Thursday during our dedicated homework time and extended times when needed.

Academic & Enrichment Activities
Students are given opportunities to learn through hands-on activities and experiments. They engage in fun activities that create a desire to learn through a mix of traditional and nontraditional topics including STEM, arts and crafts, cooking sessions, and leadership and financial training.
Daily Physical Activities
Students are encouraged to be physically active daily to enhance their physical well-being. Our staff helps them identify activities they enjoy and might engage in long term. Physical activity keeps kids’ bodies and minds from becoming sluggish and unproductive.
STEM Maker Lab
Students receive weekly in-person STEM enrichment from our partner STEM for Kids SC in our STEM Maker Lab. Students enhance their critical thinking by building video games, Minecraft virtual city building, and animation and game design.
The Yogi Bear program is design to enhanced the mindfulness of children by using games, art, play and meditation techniques. The behavior intervention used, helps children acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
