After School Program 課餘班

After School Program

Our Afterschool Program runs from 3 pm to 7 pm, Monday through Friday. Students join different classes at KKCS according to their grades in the public school. We provide homework help, enrichment lessons for English, math, and other school subjects, as well as Chinese classes, and a variety of clubs and activities. Our teachers are college graduates and experienced educators, some of whom with post-graduate degrees and are certified by the Massachusetts Department of Education. Helping in each classroom is at least one teaching assistant (TA) who comes consistently every day.
