Access AfterSchool’s Accelerate (XLR8) is an afterschool academic and enrichment program for elementary school students. Instructors facilitate academic and enrichment programming over the course of a semester based on the needs of their students. The program is offered three days a week depending on the school. It is during after school hours at the same school your student currently attends and lasts 1.5 hours. Instructors meet their students after having a snack with the Liaison. Class sizes averages 1 instructor to 8 students (maximum 1:10). There is no cost to families at this time. For XLR8 you will be responsible for picking up your student from their after school program. Contact your after school liaison if you know you will be late.
