Our students learn in and out of the classroom. Our after school activities are led by our talented staff and proven community partners to provide a safe, supportive place for academic enrichment and fun.

Dragons After Dismissal

One of our signature programs, Dragons After Dismissal, is a grant funded, 33-week afterschool program for up to 100 Govans students, K-5th.  It Includes homework help, healthy snack and dinner, and services to support parental involvement. 

Mondays through Thursdays, 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. (times may vary) 

Dragons After Dismissal activities include:

“The Dragons After Dismissal is an engaging, safe, and supportive environment with many enrichment activities to spark a child’s curiosity. The children explore art, theater, athletics, music, debate, student government, radio production, cooking, character education and STEM activities. And they connect to community resources that support them beyond school.”
