21st Century After-school Program

The 21st Century Community Learning Centers program offers educational activities that are designed to help students with homework, and to improve their reading and math skills. Enrichment activities such as art, music, physical education, and science are offered daily. The 21st Century program is funded through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education and will be no cost to you. The goals of the program are:

  1. Students who participate in the program will meet or exceed state and local academic achievement standards in reading and math

  2. Students who participate in the program will improve their school attendance and behavior in school

  3. Students who participate in the program will demonstrate additional positive educational, social, and behavioral changes

The program is held Monday through Thursday from 2:45 p.m. – 5:45 p.m. through the end of the school year. Students will receive dinner, help with homework, tutoring in math and reading, and will participate in enrichment activities each program day.

Parents and guardians who are interested in having their child participate in the program, must complete the enrollment form and return it to the Main Office. Parents/guardians will be contacted to complete enrollment paperwork before their child begins attending the program.

2018-2019 applications are available in the Community School Office.
