ANAHEIM ACHIEVES AFTER
SCHOOL PROGRAM

ANAHEIM’S #1 AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM

Award-Winning After School Collaboration

The Anaheim Achieves after school collaboration has earned state and national recognition for its outstanding curriculum in academics, enrichment and recreation. Beyond that, Anaheim Achieves promotes community safety, parent involvement, volunteerism and civic pride.

Anaheim Achieves builds upon the school district’s exceptional academic curriculum by providing literacy development, homework assistance, mentoring, enrichment activities (art, music, dance), character development and countless more activities. All sites are open until 6 p.m.

Some benefits students receive include:

  • Homework/study time to help address specific academic needs
  • Structured recreational and enrichment activities
  • Monthly field trips (at no extra cost)
  • Character Development (to learn about honesty, caring, respect and responsibility)
  • Afternoon snacks
  • One-on-one mentors and tutors
  • A variety of clubs, such as cooking, drama, sports, arts & crafts, and cheerleading

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 – 12th 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.
