After School Activities

After School Activities: Vary from school to school and include both academic and extracurricular programs.
Tutoring Each individual Union City school provides tutoring services. Please contact your principal for your school’s programs and hours.
Extended Day Programs: The Union City School District Extended Day Program is designed to address the intellectual, social, and physical needs of our students to support the mastery of the New Jersey Student Standards.
Athletic Events:   It is the intent of the Union City Board of Education and the Athletic Department to provide our students with a comprehensive, well-planned program of interscholastic athletics.

Support Educational Services (SES) and 21st Century are just two of the programs we offer at schools in need of improvement as defined by the ESSA.

21st CCLC Grant
The 21st CCLC Grant, which is a competitive grant, has been implemented in the  Union City School District for the past several years. This grant funds for after school programs at four sites: Emerson Middle School, George Washington School,  Gilmore School, and Union Hill Middle School.  The grant services students in grades 4 through 8, as well as their families.

The 21st CCLC Grant provides for both a summer and school year program. The school year program, which operates five days per week, from 3:00-6:00pm, offers a diverse array of activities. These activities include academics, social and emotional learning, character education, recreation, cultural and artistic classes, youth development activities, and literacy related activities for families.

Through work with a variety of collaborators, the 21st CCLC Program provides high-quality educational and enrichment programs that will enable students to improve academic achievement and promote positive behavior and appropriate social interaction with peers and adults.

In summary, the 21st CCLC Program hopes to enhance the lives of our students, their parents, and our community through diverse and creative experiences beyond the school day.

Our programs also include sports, recreation, family math, family science, and many others.
