ASES – After School Only

In partnership with the Oceanside Unified School District, the YMCA ASES program is a grant funded program whose overarching goal is to close the achievement gap for all students by improving the academic performance and scholastic success of the students in the program. This is accomplished by providing high quality academic programming after school and ensuring that learning is active, collaborative, meaningful and relevant to youth, supports skill mastery, and broadens horizons. With a capacity of 40 students this after school only program for 1-5th graders runs M, T, Th, and F from 2:55-6:00 PM, and W 12:25-6:00 PM. For more information, please contact the Site Supervisor, Mrs. Gabbie, at or 760-484-4228.
