Campuses included in the program are 1 Middle School, 1, 1 Elementary School. Programs will be open Monday through Friday after school. Each campus will be open at times deemed appropriate based on campus need.
The purpose of the program is to ensure that students graduate and are ready for college and/or career. The four components included in the program will be academic support; enrichment opportunities; family engagement and education; as well as college/career preparation. This exciting, new program will provide students opportunities to participate in activities such as art, music, theatre, film-making, photography, science, cooking, homework support, and tutoring. In addition, parents will have opportunities to improve their own knowledge and skills through classes such as helping students with homework, learning English, and parenting through our Parent University.
