Enhanced After School Program

Positions start at the end of August 2021

Too many After School Programs are little more than glorified babysitting services with no structured plan to improve children's health, grades, confidence, focus, leadership skills or self-esteem.

The Academy developed the Academy’s Enhanced After School Martial Arts Program to address these issues. The Academy’s Program offers a unique mix of Academics, physical activity, social interaction and Martial Art Instruction
