Why Choose Afterschool?

  • Why Choose Afterschool?

    EDEP is the place to be!  It's a place for your students to complete homework and have fun with friends in an educational environment.  All elementary school activity leaders bring a variety of enriching activities to the program, such as art projects, cooking, theater, & more!  EDEP also has laid-back fun, outdoor play, and indoor games. 

    Williams EDEP Program is a very fun and engaging program for all elementary-age students. We offer homework help daily with our College Volunteers/ Mentors. We have two high school programs joining us bi-weekly. Eastside High School's Science 4 Kids and Eastside High School's IB Art Students conduct science experiments or art projects respectfully. We also reward our students with monthly parties and NOBODY PARTIES LIKE EDEP.

    Join us this year for a fun after-school experience!  See the link above about WHY after-school programs are beneficial to our youth!

Procedures have been selected for enrollment priorities and are followed by the principal until the program has reached capacity.
