After School Education And Safety (ASES) Program

The vision of the After School Education and Safety (ASES) programs in Modesto City Schools is to motivate, encourage and empower our students, parents and staff members to recognize and achieve their full individual potential and become productive community members. The ASES program will provide students with academic and recreational enrichment activities in a safe environment. Youth will be encouraged to engage in a variety of opportunities in partnership with staff and parents to obtain the knowledge and skills they need to become outstanding citizens who contribute to the community in positive ways.

ASES provides a safe, secure environment for students TK-8 during after school hours until 6:00 p.m. (6:03 Jr. High). Students have the opportunity to receive homework assistance, as well as participate in extended learning activities, such as, art, music, fitness and wellness, science, and service learning.

"My child goes to school so he can go to ASES. They do so much fun stuff. He can't go to ASES unless he goes to school. He had perfect attendance for the first time ever!"


"The staff is awesome and do a lot of fun activities. I've had 5 grandchildren pass through and they always come up with new and exciting activities. I don't know how they do it!"

Student Eligibility and Enrollment

All students TK-8 enrolled at an ASES program site are eligible to attend. ASES is free to all participating families. At many program sites, demand exceeds capacity; therefore, families must comply with the attendance policy. Waiting lists are maintained and parents will be contacted when they have been selected for an available opening. Each ASES program enrolls its own students. Use the contact site number to inquire about enrollment information. You may also contact the Intervention Programs office at (209) 574-1608.
