ACADEMIC ACHIEVERS PROGRAM
Quality out-of-school (OST) time programs like Academic Achievers reduce the number of school-aged children who become involved with negative behaviors and promote academic success. SA Youth’s Academic Achievers program takes place after school and during the summer for youth between the ages of 5 and 13.
Our site locations operate four to five hours during the school year and up to ten hours over the summer and select school holidays. SA Youth provides a safe place, caring adults, and positive youth development programs during the out-of-school time hours when juvenile delinquency and other risky behaviors can occur.
SA Youth's Out-of-School Time Program Academic Achievers is an Afterschool Centers on Education (ACE), administered by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), which provides a structured, safe, and supervised place for learning and social interaction.
