The BSNBCS Extended Learning (also called After School) program creates a safe and nurturing environment that extends learning beyond the regular school day by using hands-on service learning, fine arts, and enrichment opportunities to expand students perspectives on self and the world.
Extended Learning: ›Removing barriers to learning and increasing access to learning supports and enrichment opportunities
›Student-centered and family-centered
›Building on organizational commitment, capacity and flexibility
›Engaging and being active in the local community
The Extended Learning program is divided between Middle and Lower school. Middle school is run by our own staff with a few outside contractors. BSNBCS has a contract with DYCD (NYC’s Department of Youth and Community Development) enabling free programming for middle school scholars from 3:30-6pm. Lower School contracts with an outside provider to offer subsidized programming for K-5 from 4-6pm.
