21 st CCLC is a state-funded program, under No Child Left Behind, designed to provide extended learning and enrichment opportunities to students and parents. Adult education classes are offered in the evenings or weekends.

The mission of the Global Scholars Academy 21st Century Community Learning Center is to provide students with a variety of opportunities that ultimately will provide them with additional resources to be successful in life. Opportunities revolve around research-based approaches, both traditional and innovative in nature; i.e., a strong STEM program. STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering, and math. Through the STEM approach, we will provide the students with tools to develop creative and systemic problem solving, collaborative networks, leadership abilities, and long-term strategic outlook.
