The LEAP Program is an after school program that provides high-quality programming to students who are learning or who have learned English as a second language. We also conduct parent outreach to involve parents in the process of educating their children. We provide meaningful learning activities to help scaffold and prepare students for school and for life.
We work with Jackson County Schools, Western Carolina University, and Cullowhee United Methodist Church to create a program in which many stakeholders are interested in the long-term success of the children enrolled in the program.
The LEAP After School Program is a grant-funded organization and our continued service to the students depends on the success we can help them achieve through our teaching and facilitation of activities.
Through fun activities that have a basis in Common Core as well as other academic goals, field trips, clubs, and working with peers, students have the chance to learn many skills that will help them excel academically.
We approach our work with the children with a loving, positive standpoint. Our tutors and volunteers in the organization are trained to give each child the very best instruction, using the most up-to-date technologies and methodologies.
