Home / 21st Century Community Learning Center Program



Our 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) Grant Program’s focus is to provide expanded academic enrichment opportunities for children attending selected schools and their families. Tutorial services and academic enrichment activities are designed to help students meet local and state academic standards in subjects such as reading and math. In addition, 21st CCLC programs provide youth development activities, behavior intervention programs, drug and violence prevention programs, technology education programs, art, music and recreation programs, counseling and character education to enhance the academic components of the program.

DMCS looks forward to continuing to serve our scholars to offer them our very best! We have begun our FREE 21st Century Community Learning Center After-School Program, and we operate 171 days at five days per week. Our program is at no cost and takes place Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays with afternoon sessions from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday sessions are from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. due to early dismissal. We are looking forward to starting our first day of Summer Camp on June 17, 2019. Our last day of After-School program services is May 31, 2019.
