The Gloucester City School District is a small district with 2,200 students that will implement the 21st CCLC Program through the GOAL Center (Gloucester City Open Access Learning) Centers.  The focus of the GOAL Centers will be to provide a broad array of high-quality after-school and summer activities that help students to develop their academic and social skills in a safe and caring setting.  Ultimately, they will be better prepared to meet the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and will be better prepared for post-secondary education, and ultimately, a productive future.  There will be a wide-range of classes and activities in which students and their families can become involved including:  tutoring in basic skills, remedial classes for admission to college, arts enrichment classes and field trips, computer literacy and other classes needed.  These opportunities will be leveraged with the district’s current program offerings and will help students to be better academically and socially prepared to meet the challenges that they will face as adults.
