Our Students


We are now registering students for the 2019-20 school year. Click the link below to fill out an application.

Students living in the South End of Albany are welcome to walk through the Wizard's Wardrobe and enter the magical world of reading.  New student registration is for students attending 1st and 2nd grades and are welcome to continue through 6th grade.

Wizard's Wardrobe is located at 20 Rensselaer Street, one block from Giffen Elementary School. Giffen students are escorted there two days a week. Other students will need to be dropped off to our program. We are open 2:00 -- 5:30 pm. A tutoring session lasts 1-1⁄2 hours. We ask students to come twice a week.

We work in collaboration with several other programs in order to give parents full-week, after-school coverage. These other programs include the YMCA, Boys & Girls Club, and South End Children’s Café.
