Safe Passage Saturday Clubs offer students a secure, relaxed environment to study, learn social skills, discover new activities, and collaborate with like-minded peers.
Saturday Club students explore opportunities for learning outside of the school day in a collaborative community of self-expression.
Extracurricular activities during non-school hours teach students the importance of perseverance, motivation, and participation. These are essential skills for interacting with others in educational, social, and professional settings.
Many of our Saturday Clubs complement comprehensive school-day programs. You can learn more about each Saturday Club and its complementary program in the paragraphs below.
