Power School

Power School Logo

 

Power School is a grant funded program that is offered at no cost to families. Power School applications may be printed here in English or aqui en espanol or picked up and returned in the office of your child's school if they attend: Antonio Del Buono, Eliot, El Roble, Glen View, Las Animas, Rod Kelley, Rucker or South Valley. The Site Coordinator will contact you. Your child may not be able to start immediately depending on space availability. Unfortunately, students from Luigi Aprea, Brownell and Ascension Solorsano are not able to participate in Power School at this time. 

Vision

All students will be college and career ready with the 21st Century Skills to succeed in life.

Power School is a collaboration between Gilroy Unified School District and Community Based Organization partners.  Each agency brings unique areas of expertise to the high level of collaboration so that all Power School students across Gilroy benefit, regardless of which agency manages the site.  We are very happy to have the Mt. Madonna YMCA, Youth Alliance, and Cal-SOAP as Power School Partners              

Every day beginning immediately after school until 6pm, Power School offers a healthy snack, support with homework, an academic component to support school day learning, recreation time to encourage a healthy physically active lifestyle, and an enrichment program. We use CASA de Milagros, a Visual and Performing Arts curriculum created by the Youth Alliance. 

Students in Grades 2-8 are recruited to participate in Power School based on academic need. (Note: Kinder and 1st grade students may be enrolled as space becomes available).

Mission

Power school and Super Power Summer Camp support students through expanded learning opportunities that build confidence, self-sufficiency, academic success, and social responsibility.
