After-School Program

About Our After School Program

Positive Growth Education Center (PGEC) is excited to offer S.M.A.R.T. After-School Programming for your child. The acronym represents our focus on Science, Math, Art, Reading, and Technology. In addition, there will be sessions which include fitness and social skills (bullying and conflict resolution). We provide school-age year-round education for children and youth ages 5-12.

Homework help and academic readiness is our primary goal. We have a line-up of S.M.A.R.T. tutors who excel in the core program areas. The student tutor ratio will be 3 to 1 meaning your students will receive the individualized attention necessary to help them where they may be challenged and inspire them to do their best in every case.

We are licensed by the Georgia Department of Human Services, Bright from the Start and accept the childcare voucher program (CAPS).
