Welcome to ASPIRE Cycle 9!

    ASPIRE 21st CCLC Afterschool Program 
    The ASPIRE program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours. The program is designed to help students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as Reading and Math. ASPIRE also offers a broad array of enrichment activities, including Art, Mad Science Club, Texas Blue Bonnet Reading Club, Dual Language Reader's Theater, Keyboarding, Sports, Girls Leadership, and many more! Parent Engagement is also an integral part of the ASPIRE program. Family themed events will be posted to the 'Important Announcements" page.
    The ASPIRE program operates Monday- Friday morning from 7:00 a.m.-8:00 a.m., and Monday-Thursday after school, from 3:30 p.m.- 5:30 p.m. Early Dismissal from ASPIRE is permitted between 4:30-4:45 each day.
    Along with all the great activities ASPIRE  also offers both hot and cold meals for students! 
    ASPIRE also offers a six week summer program for students who qualify academically. Students are selected based on tier status. If your child qualifies, and there is space available, you will receive an invite letter and registration form for the program.
