Empire State After-School Program



Empire After School Program 

The Empire State After-School Program offers academic and enrichment opportunities for middle and high school scholars in an after-school setting within the Newburgh Enlarged City School District. 

NFA West, Meadow Hill, and Temple Hill scholars will start on Tuesday, January 7, 2020. NFA Main, NFA North, Heritage Middle School, and South Middle School scholars will start on Wednesday, January 8, 2020.

Empire State Scholars will have the opportunity to receive academic enrichment in math, ELA, science, and/or social studies during their enrichment program. Scholars are required to participate in both the academic and enrichment activities and must maintain regular attendance. Scholars must also exhibit positive behavior during the regular school day to maintain eligibility for participation in the Empire State After-School Program. 

Placement in a program will be contingent upon enrollment, the availability of required staff, and required funding. Program enrollment will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. A limited number of spaces are available in each program as per the terms of the Empire State After-School Program Grant. If enrollment exceeds the available capacity in a particular program, scholars may be placed on a waiting list or be offered an available space in another program. If your scholar is enrolled in a program, you will receive a welcome letter, including transportation information. Submitting an application does not guarantee placement in a program. 

Please answer all of the applicable registration questions so we can work together to provide a successful program for our scholars. Please note: parents/guardians must enter a valid email address on the registration form, otherwise the application will not be considered for placement. Online applications are preferred and highly suggested to secure placement in the program, especially for the scholar’s first choice program. Online applications are smartphone friendly. 

Thank you so much for your interest and for taking the time to apply to the Empire State After-School Program.
