Belmont Charter School runs an extensive Out of School Time (OST) program that operates year long to support the academic and social growth of our students. Our school also partners with many innovative education based non-profits including: The Children's Literacy Initiative, Woolly Gardens, Playworks, the Please Touch Museum, and the Philadelphia Art Museum. These partnerships are made to introduce our students to new ideas and concepts outside of the classroom. In addition, we provide social services to our families in need through our Family Support Program. This program provides housing assistance, job counseling, and case-managed social work. Our school also partners with Education Plus Health to operate an on site health clinic staffed by a nurse practitioner who provides health care to our students and their families.
