Based on the success of Y Learning Academy and the ongoing needs for learning support, we are incorporating academic support from Learning Coaches into our traditional Y Club program to make it Y Club Academy. With a focus on academic support, learning, social growth, health and safety, Y Club Academy gives kindergartners through sixth graders a supportive and fun environment to learn, develop interests and make friends before and after school. Parents enjoy the convenience of a state licensed program in their child's school, affordable weekly fees, and peace of mind knowing that qualified, trained staff are there to provide a positive atmosphere.
