 On-Campus After School Learning and Enrichment

Eliada’s  On-Campus After School Program provides a safe place for children and teens to spend their afternoons while developing their literacy and STEM skills.

With a staff of qualified teachers, children can focus on academic achievement in out-of-school hours enhanced by enrichment opportunities and time spent outdoors. Afterschool staff work directly with school administrators and teachers to ensure our program compliments class curriculum and meets Common Core Standards. Most important, afterschool is a place where students can learn while having fun!

Hours are from 2:30 to 5:30 every afternoon Monday through Friday, with afternoon snacks served daily.

  • Enrichment activities in art, music, current events and more to make learning fun!
  • Individual tutoring daily to give students the help they need with homework.
  • Hours on Snow Days and Teacher Work Days are 7:00 to 5:30.
  • Transportation from local schools can be arranged. Schools served include Leicester, West Buncombe, Eblen Intermediate, Emma, Johnston, and Erwin Middle.
  • Staff are trained in CPR, First Aid, and BSAC (basic school age care), and are re-certified annually.
  • We emphasize the positive, useful, and fun experiences of learning, with a focus on self-esteem, social skills, and self-help skills.

Summer Learning and Enrichment

_SCS7008

Eliada’s 21st Century Community Learning Center runs each summer to complement our afterschool program. 21st Century Community Learning Center programs recognize that summer learning loss plagues many students, and Eliada’s year-round learning and enrichment program provides opportunities to practice literacy and STEM skills no matter the time of year!

Summer Camp is open Monday through Friday from 7:00am-5:30pm. Besides literacy and STEM education, our program focuses on peer relations and conflict resolution, character building and promoting a positive self-esteem in our youth through organized activities and games that promote teambuilding skills.

Children also have access to a heated swimming pool, mountain hiking trails, mini-bike lessons (NYPUM) and riding trails (children ages 10-13), a full size gymnasium, ball field, golf driving range, playground, and indoor space with pool and ping pong tables.

Field trips are planned to meet the expressed interests of summer campers.
