The Summer Camp began in 2000. The competent, caring staff is culturally diverse and inter-generational. The After-School and Summer programs operate in a safe, nurturing, drug-free environment conducive to learning and emotional balance. Specific content and programs are subject to change, and may partner with new resources in the community.
The Academy is the tutorial and homework assistance component dedicated to nurturing healthy minds and bodies. CADAprograms staff monitors, checks and corrects every student’s homework on a daily basis and provides test, quiz and class project preparation. Computers are available to assist with homework.
In a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, an after school virtual tutoring program supports students daily learning needs.
The Expand the World program normally provides one or more field trips and a variety of cultural and social activities to broaden the children’s horizons so they can see and experience a world outside of the community.
