The P.S. 312 COMPASS program provides experienced, well-trained, and committed staff members to work with our youth that also provide positive peer and adult interaction. A few of the many things that PS 312 COMPASS program offers are academic assistance that includes homework help and project-based learning, as well as stimulating activities that complement the school day curriculum. The program also provides regular engagement in fitness, sports, dance and arts and culture, as well as archery, cooking and drama. The program emphasizes on strong relationships with the local community, such as engaging our youth participants in intergenerational activities within the community’s senior programs. During holiday breaks while public schools are closed, the COMPASS program operates as a full ten hour holiday camp. During holiday camp students receive hot breakfast and lunch, as well as participation on field trips and exploration of other New City communities.
