A to Z University (Grades K-5)

A to Z University is our after school program for students in grades K-5. A to Z University provides a safe and nurturing environment where students can enhance their academic skills. Enrichment activities give students opportunities to reinforce classroom learning and overcome gaps in school day learning. Program dates and times are listed below. The program is closed when schools are closed.

A to Z University  creates a “college campus” at each site in which students are grouped by grade level as “freshmen,” “sophomores,” “juniors” and “seniors.” Courses are themed around the letters of the alphabet.  University courses are themed around the letters of the alphabet.

All of our University courses and activities focus on Reading, Written Communication, and Math Problem Solving. The Malden Public School district has determined that our students need the most help in these academic areas, and given our intent to support the school day, we have selected these as our focus.
