Over 200 students participate in this comprehensive five day per week/ two hours per day after school program at Sandy Springs Charter Middle School incorporating academic remediation and enrichment. The After-School All-Stars (ASAS) program is implemented in collaboration with the Georgia State University Research Foundation and After-School All-Stars Atlanta. Transportation is provided by the school. About 97% percent of the students in the program are economically disadvantaged and, thus, do not pay to attend the program. Since the program’s inception in 2009, students have consistently shown an increase in test scores and grades, a decrease in disciplinary infractions and an increase in attendance as a result of participation in this program.
