21st Century Community Learning Centers Program
"Soaring Beyond Expectation"
The purpose of the 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program (21st CCLC) is to provide programming for students with opportunities for academic and personal enrichment, and adult family education. More importantly, the program complements the student's regular day academic program by focusing on the core academic subjects: reading, math and science.
In addition, the 21st CCLC program provide a safe environment for students during non-school hours, during the summer and on weekends. In Gadsden County, there are multiple centers and sites. All centers and sites provide high-quality services in order to support teaching and learning. The programming includes, but is not limited to, tutoring, mentoring, character development, homework help/assistance, music, art, service learning, physical fitness, counseling, and various recreational and drop-out prevention activities.
