About our 21st CCLC Super Science Sleuths Academy

We are proud to be entering our third year as recipients of the 21st Century Community Learning Center grant, which Kids for Kids Academy was originally awarded in August of 2015. We are currently offering children in Second Grade through Fifth grade in the target schools in our community – Kids for Kids Academy, Jack D. Gordon Elementary, and Norma Butler Bossard Elementary - free after school and summer programs that offer enrichment in the areas of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), language arts, positive pro-social behaviors, and conversational Spanish, as well as offer health and fitness activities that promote healthy lifestyles.

Our school year program takes place at our school, Kids For Kids Academy, on all Miami-Dade County Public school instructional days between August 21st, 2017 and June 7th, 2018, and includes the following:

  • Forty five minutes of targeted daily instruction in the areas of Science, math, language arts, Spanish, and classes on positive pro social behaviors will be taught by teachers with Bachelors and Masters degrees to ensure the highest level of academic instruction.
  •  Structured outdoor activities four times a week. In addition, the personal fitness component of the program will include participation in a weekly karate class, soccer class, and fitness class.
  • Students will spend 30 minutes daily using computer programs suggested by the school district to reinforce the instruction from their home school.

The program operates on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays for 2.75 hours a day, and on Wednesdays for 4 hours a day.

In addition to the school year program, students participating in the program are required to attend a seven week summer enrichment camp which includes the following:

  • 90 minutes of daily academic instruction, critical thinking games on all subject areas, daily computer use, weekly classes in soccer, personal fitness, karate, and also offers structured and free outdoor play.
