Our OST program "After School Program" possesses a current Certificate of Compliance from Department of Public Welfare (a DPW License). Licensure provides guidance regarding health and safety standards for program operation.
Our OST program includes afterschool and summer camp for up to 30 students in Kindergarten – 5th Grade. Activities are designed to contribute to the overall well-being of youth through access to services that promote their healthy physical, social, cultural, educational, and emotional development.
The OST Project of the City of Philadelphia Department of Human Services funds high-performing afterschool and summer programs for youth. Citywide, the OST Project serves 18,000 youth attending nearly 200 programs and is administered by Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC).
The afterschool program follows the School District of Philadelphia calendar. We are open on school days from 3-6pm. On early dismissal days we are open 12-3pm. Programming provides each child a fun, safe and supportive environment.

ASP participated in SEPC's 5th Annual Afterschool Idol Talent Show on Saturday, November 12th at the Kimmel Center's Perelman Theater. For the first time ever the show was completely sold out, and all 600 seats in the theater were filled with cheering audience members! The afterschool cultural dance troupe were announced the 2011 Idol Winners for their beautful performance.
We are members of the Keystone STARS (Standards, Training/Professional Development, Assistance, Resources, and Support). Keystone STARS is an initiative of the Pennsylvania Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) to improve, support, and recognize the continuous quality improvement efforts of early learning programs in Pennsylvania.
The Keystone STARS Performance Standards provide the foundation for the program. The Performance Standards are grouped into four levels: STAR 1, STAR 2, STAR 3, and STAR 4. Each level builds on the previous level and utilizes research-based best practices to promote quality early learning environments and positive child outcomes.
The standards address staff qualifications and professional development, the early learning program, partnerships with family and community, and leadership and management. Keystone STARS is managed through a partnership of the Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) and the Pennsylvania and Regional Keys.
As members of the Keystone STARS we are currently a STAR 1 Site and we are moving quickly towards STAR 2.
Special Thank You to our Funders and Supporters!
