Extended Day Program
The Extended Day Program provides award-winning afterschool academic enrichment programs for over 600 students year round. The program runs at Marshall Elementary, Bryant Elementary, Leonard R. Flynn Elementary, Sanchez Elementary Schools, and Thomas Edison Charter Academy.
The Extended Day Program combines 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 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 parters 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.
Mission Graduates is the perfect bridge between the daytime learning and extended learning. The staff and programming all centers around engaging our students in enrichment activities as well as supporting our students to deepen their knowledge. Its focus to prepare our students for college and a career perfectly aligns with our school’s mission. We love Mission Graduates!
