Helping Teens Unlock Their Potential

Our High School programs have been developed to give your student the best chance of success after high school. These programs increase student achievement and reduce risk-taking behaviors through academic support, an emphasis on health, and social enrichment programming.

Our programs for teens in grades 9–12 allow them to feel connected with their community, school, and even church—all while establishing a peer group that supports healthy habits. Whether the goal is to master their favorite subject, improve their performance in a challenging subject, or engage in activities that develop healthy values and skills, the YMCA of Central Florida has a program designed to help teens excel!
