After School 21st Century Program

NOW ENROLLING for 21st Century Learning!

The 21st Century Community Learning Center Program is recruiting children in the second through twelfth grade for the new school year. Some schools serve students in first grade. Please ask the site coordinator at your child's schools for additional details. As the school district transitions to other learning venues, the 21st Century Program will adapt and mirror the School District's learning modes. We will operate the program in person and serve your child a meal and snack daily Mondays through Thursdays. In addition to our academic programming, 21st Century Community Learning Centers also offers field trip experiences and service learning projects for youth to engage in. We invite all of our parents to participate in our family engagement options available throughout the year. The program started in September and operates from 3:30PM to 6:30PM on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. We also offer Wednesday programming before school starts at the respect campuses. Please see the site coordinator at the site for more details.     

Click on the link to your child's school, below. You will be directed to an electronic application that you can fill out and submit online. Personnel from the school building will contact you to let you know if your child has been accepted into the program. Space is limited, so please sign up soon.
