PS 242 Q


CAPA at PS 242 is an in-school program that offers a welcoming and safe environment for our students during after school hours. Our program provides children with nutritional snacks, homework help, and academic enrichment. At CAPA, students are able to bond with their classmates in a comfortable and familiar setting.

Aspiring teachers and volunteers work together with small groups to ensure that each child has completed their homework and is provided with additional help when needed. CAPA teachers also offer extra enrichment worksheets for their students, which supplements the material being learned in school. After all the academic work is completed, teachers will plan extra-curricular activities such as outdoor play, exercise, arts and crafts, and more.

Our after-school program runs from 2:20pm to 6:00pm and we cater to grades K through 3.  We operate based on the school calendar schedule. Please check the NYC DOE school year calendar for more information.  

If you would like to register or find out more information about the after-school program, please contact us anytime and we will be happy to answer your questions.
