The SUCCESS program is designed around several key beliefs and principles. First and foremost, we believe that all children can reach high standards and that all children can profit from an expanded day program. We regard the health and safety of children as a major priority, and SUCCESS provides a nurturing environment and safe haven for children during critical non-school hours.
The purpose of our program is to expand learning beyond the school day and beyond classroom doors and walls. Our program compliments supports and enhances daily classroom instruction. The program, while structured, provides staff and students with choices. Our program encourages creativity, imagination, and flexibility. Our program focuses on creating educational projects that make learning fun. Students participate in a balance of individual activities, small and large group activities, indoor and outdoor activities, and quiet as well as active play.
The vision of the Foundation for SUCCESS After School Program is a cadre of young adults who are economically self-sufficient, have healthy family and social relationships, and are contributors to the community in which they live. This vision is attuned to the District’s Mission that states the District is “preparing students for a life that is productive academically, physically, emotionally, socially, and economically.”
The Foundation for SUCCESS is charged by the District with supporting a changing student population. In keeping with this responsibility, our mission is to level the playing field for young people allowing them to build the capacity to succeed.
