    The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) serves as a supplementary program to enhance local reform efforts. The program assists students in meeting academic standards in core subjects (math, reading, science, social studies) by providing out-of-school time services to students and their families through community learning centers that offer an array of enrichment activities to complement regular academic programs.

    21st CCLC is a free program that is designed to expand after-school opportunities for Texas youths Monday - Thursday, generally between 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.  We have five early dismissal days (dates to be announced) and on those days, the after school program will be from 12:15 to 2:30 p.m.

    The purpose of this program is to establish or expand activities in community learning centers that:
    1. Provide opportunities for academic State and local student academic achievement standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and mathematics
    2. Offer students a broad array of additional services, programs, and activities, such as youth development activities, drug and violence prevention programs, counseling programs, art, music, and recreation programs, technology education programs, and character education programs that are designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program of participating students
    3. Offer families of students served by community learning centers opportunities for literacy and related educational development. 
    Cornelius 21st Century Guidelines:
    Student must be committed to attend Monday –Thursday from 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

    Please Note that the 21st Century After-School Program is NOT a drop in and out program. Your child must show up and have 80% attendance for this program.

    Excessive early pick ups will result in dismissal from the program. The earliest pick up time is 4:45 p.m. All students must be picked up on time. The latest pick up time is 5:00 p.m. daily. If there is consistent tardiness in being picked up (only 2 warnings will be given), your child will not be invited to return.
