Middle School After School Programs

  • Each middle school in Allegany County will offer an After-School Program that will positively impact student grades, provide enrichment in English, science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM), and connects students with partners that support STEAM, health, environmental literacy, college, careers, civic readiness, and drug-free lives. After School programs are an imperative support mechanism that can substantially increase academic achievement, creativity, health, and wellness for at-risk students in Allegany County. 

    The middle school After School programs are currently funded by Cares and Local funding sources. The vision of the program is for All Maryland youth to become positive, productive citizens engaged in their community.
