ASCEND After School Program

Program Overview

The ASCEND program is a collaboration between Curry Public Library and Central Curry School District to provide positive, fulfilling after school activities for kids in 5th-10th grades. The program is designed around four key components: (1) to provide opportunities for academic enrichment, (2) to work with community partners to offer an array of programs and activities to promote exploratory learning, (3) to help students transition from middle to high school, and (4) to promote meaningful family dialogue about important topics.

Activities are held at the Curry Public Library and Riley Creek School, with some programming and activities off-site. Transportation home and to/from activities is provided. Generally, the program operates five days a week, on shortened school days, and on in-service days. A complete calendar of activities can be found in the calendar tab and on our ASCEND Facebook page.
