    • did not produce statistically significant impacts on student engagement, behavior, or homework completion


After school programs and academics implications for policy practice and research background
After-School Programs and Academics — After-School Programs: FindingsImplications for Policy, Practice, and Research: Background

  • Background:  Policymakers and practitioners want to know if after-school programs affect academic achievement.

  • Goal:  Review strong evidence regarding the effects of after-school programs and examine the practices of effective programs

  • Method:  Summarize the results from three rigorous reviews of over 90 evaluations of after-school programs

After-School Programs and Academics — After-School Programs: FindingsImplications for Policy, Practice, and Research: Findings

  • On average after-school programs improve important academic outcomes like test scores and grades.

  • A subset of the evaluated programs that achieved outstanding results account for the overall positive picture.

  • The most effective programs had explicit goals,  activities aligned with those goals, and got youth actively involved in their own learning.
