The 21st CCLC grant is a competitive, federally funded grant authorized under Title IV, Part B.  The grant(s) operate 32 week after school programs in several schools listed further down.

During the summer, each of the grants will offer a four week program at one of St. Lucie Public Schools identified summer sites for the North and South end of St. Lucie County. The programs, which are offered at no cost to students or families, provide a safe environment during non-school hours for additional educational opportunities.

Each school operates a unique program of services based on the needs of the community, with the same set of goals as its premise using project based learning: Academic Enrichment in Reading and Language Arts, Academic Enrichment in Science and Mathematics, Personal Enrichment, and Educational Services to Adult Family Members.

Priority of services is offered to students of Title I eligible schools, with academic needs in Reading and/or Math (Level 1 or 2 on FCAT).  Each school is limited as to the number of students that can be served and continued funding is contingent on student attendance each day of the program.
