Signature After School Enrichment Program (SASE)
The Signature After School Enrichment (SASE) Program at Arts In Action Community Charter School is a low cost paid after school program that focuses on the enrichment and educational growth of every student. SASE provides its students with the ability and tools to explore and express their own artistic and creative side that is sometimes limited in their regularday-to-day school schedule. SASE offers divers’ classes in the arts starting at a low cost of $25 per class per month. We ask all parents and students to be committed to the SASE for the entire Fall and/or Spring Semester.
The class size for every course offered will have a minimum of twelve students and not to exceed twenty students. Students are expected to attend every class they are registered for in order for the student to benefit the most from the enrichment class. Below is the list of the enrichment classes offered for the 2013 Fall Semester.
In tutoring students will receive homework assistance in small groups so that they all benefit from the additional assistance in their academic studies. They will also be working in small leadership group activities and projects in order to introduce them to the concepts of teamwork, community and responsibility.
