Thank you for choosing the After School program at School of the Future
as we move forward and continue to strive for success in our programs.
Learning doesn’t stop when our students leave homeroom at the end of the day! In keeping with DYCD’s model, our programs offer targeted enrichment in literacy, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), and leadership development. What does this mean? Here are the basics:
DAILY HOMEWORK HELP: We provide a safe place to work, where staff can help you complete your assignments and offer extra support.
SPORTS: Our teams compete in league play against teams from other middle schools across the city. We also offer some developmental and recreational sport options for students who are new to organized sports and/or just want to have fun.
CREATIVE ARTS AND PERFORMANCES: Depending on the interests of students Manhattan Youth offers many classes in creative arts and performance. Our filmmakers produce documentaries and narrative short films for local film festivals. Other creative outlets include Theater, Jewelry Making, Dance, Comic Book Art, and Portfolio Preparation for visual arts high schools.
GENERAL ENRICHMENT AND STUDENT-INITIATED ACTIVITIES: We encourage student input to form clubs/activities with our staff based on their interests. At SOF, some of these include: DIY Club, Coding, Debate, and so much more. We look forward to hearing what YOU would like to do in afterschool!
