The after-school program is intended to motivate students via academic enrichment, technology applications that focus on science and math concepts, and visual and performing arts that include multicultural dance and chorus, and related production skills. Character education, study skills, and career awareness will be infused throughout the programs. Special programs will also be offered including careers in science such as the Pharmaceutical Certification Program and the Cisco Certified Network Associate Training for technology and business. Parents and families will be served through unique literacy and enrichment programs offered in the evening including ESL classes for parents.
