After School Programs

CAN After School Programs (ASP) operate during the school year every Monday-Thursday from about 4:00-6:00pm (depending on the location). Students complete homework, read, practice mindfulness, participate in enrichment activities, and play. Community centers also serve dinner during ASP.


These programs achieve more than homework completion - CAN partners with schools and families to advocate for its students' academic success.  CAN's ASP dedicates intentional time for the students to build their social-emotional skills, as well as their academic proficiency.


Students who attend CAN ASP have a 97% rate of graduation (compared to 70% of their economic peers, 2019), and attend 4 more days of school per student per year (compared to all AAPS students, 2010). Additionally, 88% of CAN's elementary-aged participants either maintained or improved their letter grade in the 2016-17 school year.
