The Extended Day Programs combine arts, electives, recreation, and academics to create a comprehensive and dynamic learning experience for our students.
Literacy and Math Support
All lesson plans incorporate the elements of literacy development: speaking, listening, reading, and writing infused throughout the program. Using the Common Core Standards, all staff implement games and activities to reinforce, develop, and increase students’ mathematical understanding and skills.
In our programs, we design and deliver project-based learning and sequenced intentional learning activities to reinforce and supplement the learning happening during the school day. All lessons are part of a unit, and a culminating class, program, or family event marks the end of a unit of study and showcases youth’s learning.
Engaging Enrichment Activities
In addition to staff developing enrichments designed to peak students interest and develop creativity, Mission Graduates partners with organizations dedicated to those ends, including San Francisco Ballet, San Francisco Youth Theater, Acrosports, Today’s Future Sounds, The Marsh Theatre, Abada Capoeira, and Playwell Teknologies (LEGO Robotics).
Our programs from kindergarten through senior year ensure that we are developing college-going expectations and building a college-going culture in the school communities we partner with. We build college aspirations through events and activities that inspire and prepare our students for all post-secondary college paths.
