Jefferson Junction Learning Center

The Jefferson Junction Learning Center provides an afterschool program for Jefferson Elementary School students.

 

OUR MISSION: Jefferson Junction Learning Center is a school/community partnership that strengthens our community. The Learning Centers support, educate, enrich, challenge, and provide opportunities in an extended-school day setting for children and their families within a safe environment.

 

The programs provide students in grades kindergarten through 5th a complementary learning environment that serves their individual abilities to help increase proficiency in academics, learn more about self and world, and how they might become better citizens. Our programs offer a variety of academic assistance and enrichment opportunities. All instructional programs supplement the regular school-day curriculum.

Classes are taught by certified teachers, para-professionals, and community partners. Students can participate in before– and after-school programs, Monday-Thursday, 3:07-4:45pm.
