After-School Programs

We offer after-school and extended learning programming to all students. After-school programming is offered outside of school hours and provide students with the ability to explore their own interests and develop new skills. Our club activities include arts & media, sports, health & wellness, STEM, and youth leadership.

EmpowHer Institute

The Empowered Girls Program is taught once a week to every 7th and 8th grade girl in the school. The curriculum is a series of self-esteem building modules that provide the tools and resources that teen girls need to gain confidence, build strength of character, make responsible decisions and triumph over obstacles. Volunteer mentors are a key element to exposing girls to role models and career options.

Male Success Alliance

Male Success Alliance (MSA) works with ECMS-G students to improve access, retention, and graduation rates of boys and men of color by providing academic support, professional development, and mentoring. The program utilizes a holistic approach to promote brotherhood and community through cultural awareness and identity development.


Our developmental approach involves both a comprehensive counseling program outside of the classroom and the daily use of the Tribes curriculum to teach students the skills of building a strong classroom and school community. Teachers and our counselor challenge students to understand themselves in relation to others, work together, and learn to be positive community members, students, and friends.
