About SOAR at Oak Valley Middle School

Monday through Friday
6:30am to 6:00pm

This extended-day program extends the excellence of each child's school experience into before and after school. ESS is staffed by highly-qualified professionals and trained instructional assistants. The staff provides for the academic and social needs of children in safe and nurturing environments. There is time, space, encouragement, and support for learning good study habits.  ESS is a voluntary use program. Our organization works diligently to accommodate and serve working families in need of before and after school care. A student's enrollment does not guarantee them ESS enrollment. As a growing organization, each ESS site may experience limitations that factor into the enrollment capacity and may prohibit the acceptance of additional students at any given time.
