The Community Programs Department provides extended learning opportunities for district students, their families, and other members of the East Brunswick and central New Jersey community. The activities offered by Community Programs are targeted for all ages and run morning, noon, and night. All programs are fairly priced to maximize participation by as many people as possible.
Children as young as three and four years old are eligible to participate in the Early Learning Academy pre-school program that is located at Hammarskjold Middle School. This popular program is staffed by certificated instructors and uses the Creative Curriculum as a path to early childhood education.
For students and their families the department operates the Early Morning Program for all eight elementary schools and the Morning Start program for Hammarskjold Middle School. In addition, Community Programs offers the
ASK (After School Kids) program for all elementary schools and the Encore program at Hammarskjold. In the after school programs students have time to do homework and also are involved in other opportunities to have fun and
learn interesting crafts, skills, and experience social growth. Additionally, fee-based enrichment programs such as sports, chess, cooking, Spanish language, and science enrichment are offered for mixed fun and learning.
High school students and their families can take advantage of the partnership between Community Programs and The Princeton Review to take PSAT, SAT, and ACT test preparation classes at East Brunswick for deeply
discounted prices. In addition, free practice ACT and SAT tests are also offered.
In its fourth decade, the East Brunswick Adult School offers courses in English as a Second Language (ESL), Citizenship Exam Preparation, and High School Equivalency Exam Preparation. Funded by a grant from the
U.S. Department of Labor, the Adult School had 498 students last school year. In addition, 29 students from the Citizenship Exam Preparation class passed their exam and now enjoy U.S. citizenship.
Community Programs is proud to offer these quality functions for the benefit of many. The department is committed to extended learning in terms of age, types of activities, times of day, or days of the week.Staff Directory
