East End House
East End House community center uses a holistic approach to promote the well-being, academic achievement, and successful transition to adulthood of children and youth from under-resourced families in Cambridge and surrounding communities. As part of the approach, East End House provides support services to a diverse population, from infants to seniors, to strengthen family and community. East End House’s School Age Program enhances academic achievement and promotes overall development for children in kindergarten through 5th grade. The program is accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA), making it the only nationally accredited afterschool program in Cambridge.

During the school year the School Age Program operates from 2PM to 6PM after school and full days during school vacations. Activities incorporate multicultural and interdisciplinary activities, computer skills, math and science classes, sports, reading and literacy projects, dance, cooperative games and much more. The program places a particular emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) studies as well as developing character strengths. Children also receive structured homework help.

East End House’s School Age Program also offers a full-day, ten week program during the summer. To enroll your child in the School Age Program or for more information visit our website or contact Catharine Downs, School Age Program Director at 617.876.4444.
