There is a moment in the life of a child when he finds himself doing something he previously thought impossible. This can be the moment he learns a musical instrument, masters his times table, shares a piece of creative writing in public, or sees his name on the honors list. Whatever the moment is – that moment becomes a platform on which a child can build a life of achievement and confidence. The beginning of an awakening. The New City After School Center seeks to bring this moment to children again and again until they are propelled on a trajectory of transformation.
The After School Center invites kids (1st-8th grade) to take part in an academic and arts enrichment program. The core curriculum blends English, math, and geography lessons with fine and performing arts, music, and more. The After School Center now operates during the Jersey City Public School year in two locations:
- 240 Fairmount Ave. – 2:45-5:45 / Monday – Friday
- 155 Vroom St. – 2:45-5:45 / Monday – Thursday
