4.4.3 ExCEL After School Programs

ExCEL After School Programs

ExCEL After School programs are in 100 SFUSD schools, including elementary, K-8, middle, and high schools.  The programs are funded through competitive grants from the California Department of Education.  Enrollment is required to participate, and space may be limited.

Priority enrollment is given to focal students (identified by the state's Expanding Learning Opportunities Program funding) and to students who attend the program every day after school.  

Students participate in:

Academics:  Students complete their homework and study reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and technology.  High school students also work on college and career preparation and other credit earning options. 

Enrichment:  Students choose classes such as art, cooking, music, and life skills that are fun and broaden their experiences. 

Recreation:  Students participate in sports, dance, games, and other physical activities to stay healthy. 

Every program involves teachers from your child’s school to make sure that after-school academics are aligned with the school-day curriculum.
