Empire Gardens’ students are eligible to attend an after school program until 6:00pm each day, funded by the state and the city. Students receive homework assistance and participate in recreation, art, and music activities, according to a specific schedule. Information and application forms are available in the school office.Top
We partner with Tabard Theatre, a local theater located in downtown San Jose, to offer two 8-week enrichment sessions after school right here at Empire Gardens—one in the fall and one in the spring. The program culminates in live performances by participating students at the end of each session.
This program is open to Kindergarten through 5th grade students and is free to all families. It promotes social skills, teamwork, language and speaking skills, self-esteem, and a love of the arts. It takes place right here at Empire Gardens, so no transportation is needed (except to pick up your child each day of the program as transportation is not provided).
