After School & Summer Program
CPACS operates after school and summer programs/sites that serve elementary, middle, and high school students. Our afterschool sites are located in DeKalb, Clayton, and Gwinnett counties. We also operate summer programs from June-August.
The focus of the afterschool and summer programs is to provide support for the low-income and emergent bilingual children in DeKalb, Clayton, and Gwinnett counties with difficulties they are having in their communities, so that they can handle those issues successfully.
The programs provide homework assistance, life skills training, character development, leadership development, and recreational engagements among other skill-based education workshops on preventing alcohol, tobacco and other drug use.
We offer 4 sites programs for elementary school, 2 for middle school, and 1 for high school.
COOL, STAR, and Chamblee sites located at and near our main office serve K-5 youth, and PRIDE serves K-5 refugee youth in Clarkston.
Our main academic focus with these sites is literacy because many of our elementary students in the community are English language learners.
Additionally, we incorporate a socio-emotional focus with our young learners to support a healthy development of social skills, emotional regulation, and self-esteem despite the adverse childhood experiences.
