Welcome to 21st Century Community Learning Centers After School Programs

Just What Is 21stCCLC All About?
21st Century Community Learning Centers (21CCLC) are FREE academic after-school and Summer programs operating at twelve  Alachua County School District school sites.  The mission of 21st CCLC is to help students improve their academic skills while participating in fun, positive and enriching after school activities which complement regular day academic programs.  Students learn in a Project Based Learning (PBL) format, while integrating all core academics, art, physical education, character education/development, and a variety of personal enrichment activities.  Free suppers are provided daily at all site locations.  

A completed and signed enrollment application is required.  All Alachua County students are eligible to enroll, no qualifying criteria required. However, application does not guarantee acceptance in the program, and 21stCCLC is not a first come-first serve program.   School Site Coordinators collect completed applications and contact parents with a start date if the child is accepted into the program.  Families are asked to be patient for this process, especially during the summer enrollment process.       

Partners
Partnerships with the University of Florida, Santa Fe College, Gainesville Regional Utilities, Library Partnership, United Way, Gainesville Area Community Tennis Association (GACTA), Jonesville Tennis Center (JTC), Florida Fencing Academy (FFA), Choi Kwang Do Martial Arts, Rising Phoneix Martial Arts, Cade Museum, City of Gainesville Parks and Recreation, Florida Organic Growers (FOG), and many more local organizations help fulfill the program objectives.

Summer Programming
21stCCLC operates after school during school year and for about 6-7 weeks during the summer.  Summer programming includes free breakfast, free lunch, and an afternoon snack.  A wide variety of activities are planned to engage students in continued educational support as well as fun.  Activities include project studies in robotics, architecture, environmental studies, tutoring and mentoring, tennis, martial arts, fencing, sports, art, health, and a water safety curriculum.  Walking field trips and limited local field trips are a feature of summer programs.  Click on a site link to the left of this screen for information on dates and times.
