Santa Cruz Learning Center

After-school Program

Santa Cruz Learning Center is pleased to announce our afterschool program. At SCLC, we provide elementary and middle school students with a fun and engaging learning environment during the hours most parents/guardians are working. Parents/guardians can feel comfortable knowing their children are not only receiving academic support but are also staying physically active, interacting with peers, and learning leadership skills.
