Anaheim Achieves After School Program
Anaheim’s #1 After School Program
Award-Winning After School Collaboration
Now in its 18th year, the Anaheim Achieves after school program has grown from its 16 original school sites to 45 current sites, serving more than 5,000 students daily in elementary, junior high and high schools. The program has received state and national recognition for its commitment to community collaboration and dedication to educational excellence, and was chosen by the California Department of Education to become one of 14 Regional Learning Centers intended to be a model for developing programs throughout the state of California. For all of these reasons and more, the Anaheim Achieves after school program has made a marked impact on the children, families, and communities in and surrounding Anaheim, California.
Thanks to the Anaheim Achieves after school program, students are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices after school. They have a safe, positive and enriching place to explore their unique talents and interests, and discover their full potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
Anaheim Achieves is located on your child’s school campus. The program serves students from Kindergarten – 6th grade and is offered at 46 schools throughout Anaheim (35 elementary, 6 junior high and 5 high schools) in partnership with the Anaheim Elementary, Savanna, Magnolia and Anaheim Union High School districts, City of Anaheim, California Department of Education and Orange County Department of Education. The program operates from school dismissal to 6:00pm.
