21st Century Community Learning Centers

The 21st CCLC grant is a competitive, federally funded grant authorized under Title IV, Part B.  The grant is awarded for a five year period with a continuation application being submitted each year. In October of 2014 the School Board of St. Lucie County was awarded two grants, Explorer and Steam.  These grants will operate through the summer of 2019 at seven school site locations.
  • The Explorer grant operates a 32 week afterschool program within three Title I schools in Ft. Pierce: Samuel S. Gaines Academy K-8, Northport K-8 and Southport Middle.
  • The Steam grant operates 32 week after school programs within four Title I schools in Ft. Pierce and Port St. Lucie: Chester A. Moore Elementary, Floresta Elementary, Lawnwood Elementary and Weatherbee Elementary.

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.
