“The essence of our program: It is a hope-filled place for all students from diverse backgrounds to be accepted as they are, so that they can grow into their greatest potential.” - 21st CCLC School District, CDE

Through the awarded 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) grant, Cañon City School District aims to provide programming that supports the creation of local out-of-school time (OST) programs to provide students and their families with high-quality academic enrichment opportunities and services.

Our centers are currently located at Cañon City Middle School for grades 6-8 and Cañon City High School for grades 9-12. Centers serve students to provide academic and enrichment services during non-school hours. Our services focus on helping children succeed academically by:
  1. Providing opportunities for academic enrichment, including tutoring services and homework help, to help students meet state and local academic standards.
  2. Offering students a broad array of additional enrichment services, programs, and activities.
  3. Offering families of students served by community learning centers opportunities for active and meaningful engagement in their children’s education, including opportunities for literacy and related educational development.
