    The SBAC's Extended Day Enrichment Program offers after-school supervision and a variety of enrichment activities for children in 6th through 8th grade. The program is non-profit and entirely fee-supported by those using its services.

    Each day we provide a healthy snack followed by half an hour of homework time.

    After homework time, students may participate in a variety of EDEP sponsored activities and clubs, as well as designing and participating in student-initiated activities.
    EDEP is a great space for your teen to socialize in a supervised environment, get homework done, and participate in a wide range of stimulating enrichment activities.

    We make every effort to work with parents and teachers alike to provide the mentorship and creative opportunities each student needs to be the best they can be, in the classroom and beyond.

    Late fees will be charged beginning at 6:01pm at a rate of $15.00 per child for every 15 minutes you are late.  Three late pick-ups will result in dismissal from the program.

Important Information

  • Homework Policy

    EDEP has homework time Monday-Thursday and we also have access to computers for homework assignments.  Each day we will bring all of the students together and encourage them to do their homework.  Alternate activities will be available for those students that do not choose to do homework.  Due to the large number of students in EDEP we are not able to guarantee one on one assistance to individual students, although we do provide homework help whenever possible.

    Students are expected to bring their own supplies for homework.
