Beginning in September 2018, the Archdiocese of New York will launch enhanced After-School Enrichment Programs at 15 participating schools.

The enhanced After-School Enrichment Programs’ structure allows students time to play, work and learn in community with their peers, in a safe, caring after-school environment affording peace of mind to parents whose schedules necessitate a later pick-up time each day.

The additional, daily exposure each day to new activities infused with Catholic values and faith, will give children an edge in their development as thinkers, leaders and members of their communities.


The After-School Enrichment Program at each participating school is overseen by a designated Program Director, working closely with faculty, staff and other specialists to create an engaging, fun and educational experience for students.

Program Description:*

In addition to the current after-school resources and programs available at all Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of New York, the enhanced After-School Enrichment Program provides students with an opportunity to engage in new activities after school, which could include:
