21st Century Community Learning Center

  • The 21st CCLC grant serves as a supplementary program that can enhance state or local reform efforts to improve student academic achievement and support overall student development. According to the USDE, the purpose of the program is to create community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities for children, particularly students who attend high-need, high-poverty, low-performing schools, to meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects.

    A community learning center assists students outside school hours or when school is not in session to complement the student’s regular academic program. The 21st CCLC funds will create and expand out-of-school-time (OST) programs that offer extended learning opportunities for children and their families. 


    The 21st Century Community Learning Center’s program, also known as Texas Afterschool Centers on Education (ACE), is intended to improve the following outcomes for students:

    • Academic performance
    • Attendance
    • Behavior
    • Promotion rates
    • Graduation rates
