21st Century Afterschool Program

21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) is an out-of-school-time program offered free of charge through a federal grant administered by the New Mexico Public Education Department.  The program offers academic, leadership, and enrichment opportunities for students and families.  The program is offered Monday through Friday, both mornings and evenings. All 21st CCLC students must participate on a regular basis.  If the program is offered both morning and afternoon, students are not required to attend both sessions.

The morning program runs Monday through Friday from 7:00 – 8:00 A.M.  The afternoon program hours are 3:40 - 6:00 P.M. Monday, through Friday.  Meals will be served during this time. We will not be open on non-school days.  There won’t be a morning program on delayed schedule days or afternoon/evening services on early release days.

Family group activities will be offered on some evenings and weekends.  Please attend as many activities as possible!  Family participation is very important to our grant because 21st CCCL has a dual capacity framework, meaning we serve both students AND families!
