Funded in full or in part with a grant by the Pennsylvania Department of Education


The 21st Century Community Learning Centers program offers educational activities that are designed to help students with homework and to improve their reading and math skills. Enrichment activities such as art, music, physical education,  and science are offered daily. The 21st Century program is funded through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education and will be no cost to you. 

The goals of the 21st Century After-school Tutoring Program are:

 1. Students who participate in the program will meet or exceed state and local academic achievement standards in reading and math

 2. Students who participate in the program will improve their school attendance and behavior in school

 3. Students who participate in the program will demonstrate additional positive educational, social, and behavioral changes

Virtual programming will run until the Allentown City School District returns to face-to-face instruction.  Dinner and transportation are not distributed during virtual learning. 

 

Parents and guardians who are interested in having their children participate 

in the program, must complete the enrollment form and return it to the respective project coordinator.
