Our S.P.A.S.E. Afterschool program provides a range of high-quality enrichment activities designed to support students’ learning and development. The activities reinforce and complement students’ regular academic growth and development during non-school hours. Jasmine Thompson, a biology education major from Alcorn State University, is our S.P.A.S.E. coordinator.
The S.P.A.S.E. after-school program provides a combination of academic, enrichment, and recreational activities. Students are not only taught theories and concepts but are provided hands-on learning experiences. Students are given the opportunity to apply these concepts within relevant contexts. Also, students are provided homework support, tutoring in core academic subjects, individualized attention, technology integrations into activities, and various collaboration opportunities.
Research states that the most effective academic enrichment programs develop activities to meet the particular needs of students in their local communities. The activities in our afterschool program are designed to meet the individual needs of the students. We are grateful for the opportunity to continue to fulfill our mission of impacting lives by offering innovative ministries. The fall session of our S.P.A.S.E. afterschool program begins on September 13, 2021.
