Joyful Learning Afterschool Program

Our Joyful Learning Afterschool Program is an affordable program that extends personalized one-on-one educational support.

Joyful Learning encompasses both in-person and online platforms, providing comprehensive homework assistance, tutoring services, and a spectrum of extracurricular opportunities tailored for students in grades one through eight.

  • Financial Obligations

    The Joyful Learning After school program’s tuition fee is $100/month without any financial assistance. However, financial aid is available to applicable individuals and families.

  • Financial Aid

    Your eligibility for the financial assistance is decided by your annual income and where it falls under the HUD (The Department of Housing and Urban Development) Income Limits. Detailed income limits vary per year, the size of the household, and state/county.

  • Multiple Locations

    We provide in person tutoring in locations such as, Parsippany, Palisades Park, Leonia, and Bayside. But, our goal is to provide the Joyful Learning Afterschool Program nationwide!
