Application for 21st Century Community Learning Center Program

This program is being offered to your child to improve his/her math, reading, writing, and science skills. The after-school program will consist of project-based learning incorporating academics and extracurricular/personal enrichment activities. Reading, Writing, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), will be taught through project-based learning. Students will work collaboratively to investigate, research, and employ the 21st century skills learned in order to complete a variety of projects throughout the year. Students will also be provided time to work on homework and participate in extracurricular activities such as sports, arts, tutorials, and mentoring activities.
Each student will be provided with breakfast upon arrival and lunch prior to dismissal. Meals will be served at no cost to the parent/student(s). Seats in our program are limited and are offered on a first come first serve basis. If our numbers are more than we are able to accommodate, your child will be placed on a waiting list. Please note the rules that are listed below:

  • Disruptive behavior will result in termination from the program – no exceptions. Students must respect their peers, faculty and staff.
