After school program

About the program A collaboration between ExCEL and the Jamestown Community Center, this afterschool program operates a minimum of three hours per day, Monday-Friday, when school is in session. The program focuses on four main goals: maintaining quality programming; nurturing relationships between families, schools, and communities; supporting the all-around development of the child/youth; and encouraging community awareness, participation, and activism.SFUSD ExCEL afterschool programs ensure involvement of teachers from students' schools to make sure that afterschool academics are aligned with the school day curriculum. Every school with an ExCEL program partners with a nonprofit community-based organization to run activities and build bridges to the neighborhood. Activities include enrichment (dance, theater, art, cooking, recreation, skateboarding), academic tutoring, and homework help.

Summer program

Program name ExCEL Summer Program
About the program Each program has an academic, enrichment and physical activity component. The programs are based on a youth development model and include project based learning activities. The summer programs are operated by community based organizations that are contracted by SFUSD to provide the services based on grants to the school from California Department of Education. Each organization has a site specific enrollment process. Priority enrollment goes to the students from the school site. Students from other SFUSD schools are eligible to apply though in many of the elementary schools there is more demand than available slots. Funding changes year to year and program offerings change. Contact the school for details. This program may take place off site.
