Support NAS: Featured Initiative-The 21st Century Community Learning Center

Each New America School operates a 21st Century Community Learning Center (CLC), made possible through the U.S. Department of Education. These Centers offer students a series of out-of-school time academic interventions (Friday and summer classes, one-to-one tutoring, credit recovery programming); enrichment activities (sports, arts and leadership clubs; service learning opportunities) and whole family educational activities (Educational Outings, Parent Academy). These interventions have demonstrably advanced NAS students’ social-emotional development and academic achievement (as shown statistically through metrics such as Average Daily Attendance and Credits Earned towards Graduation), which in turn leads to our long-term goals of increased graduation rates and post-secondary and workforce readiness.

The Centers operate from 3:00-5:00 during the school-week, thus extending the school day by two hours per day. The CLCs are also open from 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. on Fridays during the school year and from 9:00-3:00 Monday through Friday during four weeks in summer, thus offering students an extended school year. Additional OST activities, such as ½ day service learning opportunities and whole family educational outings are held regularly on weekends.

Contributions in support of the New America School’s 21st Century Community Learning Center will help NAS expand the services we currently offer, thus bringing even greater opportunities to our students to participate in quality out-of-school time experiences.
