The P.S. 88 COMPASS After-School Program serves approximately 150 children during the school year. Our program is open to students from K to 5 and runs between the hours of 2:15PM and 5:30PM during the school calendar year.


Our goal is to provide a learning environment that allows students to remain creative and physically fit. Our professional staff is dedicated to providing a fun and safe environment that enhances school day learning through various activities geared for this purpose. Our activities are created to coincide with school day learning and the common core curriculum. We also administer up to an hour each day of homework help and each child is given a healthy snack that is provided by School Foods.
