Academic Support Before and After the Bell

Our Before and After School program focus aligns the YMCA’s strengths with key educational milestones: being prepared to learn, reading at grade level, and staying on track academically when entering middle school.

We increase student achievement and reduce risk-taking behaviors through academic support in combination with health and social enrichment programming. Conveniently located on-site, the Y offers students a variety of fun and intentional activities each day before or after school. They’ll enjoy homework help with at least 30 minutes per day of literacy and mathematical support as well as fitness and nutrition education (and a snack)! Outside of academics, we also align programming with the Y’s core values to encourage character development and leadership skills.
