Operated at individual schools, PwrHrs uses local teachers and facilities combined with a powerful 6:1 student/teacher ratio that accelerates growth for students. PwrHrs provides extended learning and enrichment opportunities such as nutrition, character building, athletics, dance, music and art for students three to four days per week. The additional time spent on academics and participating in safe after-school enrichment activities improves academic scores and promotes social, emotional and physical well-being.
