Welcome to the Shikellamy School District Afterschool Program!

Afterschool and Summer STEAM Program (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) 

The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) is a federal grant that provides programming for the students of Shikellamy School District with afterschool and summer learning opportunities. These programs focus on STEAM related enrichment activities that build on the lessons of the school day curriculum.

Shikellamy was first awarded the 21st CCLC Grant in 2008 and have since been able to implement successful programs in every building throughout the district, affecting thousands of students from elementary through high school. Currently, the afterschool and summer STEAM programs take place in all four Elementary Schools and the Shikellamy Middle School for students in grades 3rd through 8th. Additionally, through the 21st CCLC Grant, Shikellamy is able to offer High School students in grades 9th through 12th credit recovery courses that provide an avenue to graduation by making up failed courses during the school year and over the summer.  

The afterschool and summer programs provide students with an exciting approach to learning. Students have the opportunity to work with school day teachers to expand their creative minds through exploration and discovery. In addition to enrichment learning, the program offers students guided homework help, healthy meals provided by the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, nutrition and active living information, and opportunities for social growth through team building activities.

In order to provide the best experience possible, the 21st CCLC program works with many surrounding community partners including Box of Light Studios, Customized Tutoring Services, Sunbury YMCA and Arts Center, Evangelical Community Hospital, Northumberland County Human Services, Degenstein Community Library, Preistley-Forsyth Memorial Library, Clyde Peeling Reptileland, Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, and Capital Area Intermediate Unit.

Please contact any of the 21st CCLC staff with questions or concerns regarding the program. We look forward to hearing from you and working with your child!
