Elementary After School Program

The Troy City School District is a recipient of the Empire State After School Grant. The grant allows for each District elementary school to host its own after school program, resulting in additional learning time for students in Grades K-5 throughout Troy. The Troy YMCA and the Troy Boys and Girls Club are partners with the District to provide these services.

The after school program offers:

  • Dinner each night
  • Academic support, and mindfulness and enrichment activities
  • Transportation for Grades 2-5 (See parent letter below for details.)

The program is scheduled for September 16, 2019 – June 12, 2020.
