Afterschool and Summer STEAM Programs
(Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics)
The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) is a federal grant that provides out-of-school learning opportunities for students across the nation. Through these funds, the Shikellamy School District provides students with STEAM related afterschool and summer programming to help your child grow both academically and socially.
Shikellamy was first awarded the 21st CCLC grant in 2008 and have since been able to provide successful programming to over 1,000 students throughout the district. Currently, students in grades Kindergarten through 8th receive STEAM related enrichment through afterschool and summer programming. Additionally, students in grades 9th through 12th are provided a credit recovery program that allows them to make up failed or dropped courses as they work towards graduation.
The afterschool and summer programs provide students with an exciting approach to learning. Students have the opportunity to work with school day teachers to expand their creative minds through exploration and discovery. In addition to enrichment learning, the program offers students guided homework help, physical activity, healthy meals provided by the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, nutrition and active living information, and opportunities for social growth through team building activities.
In order to provide the best experience possible, the 21st CCLC program works with many surrounding community partners including the Greater Susquehanna Valley United Way, Box of Light Studios, Customized Tutoring Services, Sunbury YMCA , Evangelical Community Hospital, Northumberland County Human Services, Degenstein Community Library, Preistley-Forsyth Memorial Library, Clyde Peeling Reptileland, Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, and Capital Area Intermediate Unit.
Please contact any of the 21st CCLC staff with questions or concerns regarding the program. We look forward to hearing from you and working with your child!
