A Premier After School Program
I Can Excel (ICE) is FSH’s premiere after-school program that improves student academics, encourages active lifestyles, and strengthens leadership skills in girls ages 6-18. At the start of every season, each girl makes a commitment to attend 9-15 hours per week of on-ice instruction and off-ice educational programming, and receives the support of more than 50 tutors, teachers, social workers, counselors and skating coaches. Students receive team warm-up suits and use of skating equipment for the season, and are expected to attend between 3 and 5 afternoons per week. All students perform in the end of season Ice Show and awards banquet. Students may audition for a spot on one of three synchronized skating teams.
The academic component focuses on rigorous small group tutoring to improve basic reading, writing and math competencies. We also introduce STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), financial literacy and communications classes to girls in a way that hones what they are learning in school and builds upon it. Individualized guidance and high school and college access workshops are offered to students throughout the year.
"FSH increased my academic stamina, helped with my time management, and helped me stay dedicated to my academics.”
