ACES provides a supplement to classroom instructional in a safe after-school environment. It is the intent of the program to expand learning beyond the classroom wall and to strengthen academic achievement, build participants' leadership skills and enhance positive character traits. The program begins immediately upon school dismissal until 6:00 p.m. Applications are available at the school sites and on-line. Attendance at a mandatory orientation meeting is required prior to student attending the program. Site Manager contact information is listed below.
The ACES program will support the involvement of 80-90 students, grades 2-6, in a safe, nurturing after school setting. Approximately half of the enrollment into the program will come from staff recommendations, with the other half offered on a first come, first served basis. A waiting list will be created once the program is full.
