LIFT Academy is a FREE year-round after school and summer program for middle school and high school aged youth aiming to prevent the "after school/summer slide" and provide a structured and safe space during the evening hours and summer months by engaging our young people in hands on learning, introducing them to new opportunities, developing lifelong skills, and connecting them to community experts and mentors.


We will give a pre-assessment to every entering student to assess where they are academically. We will provide remediation and enrichment services in Math and Reading through reteaching, modeling, and other proven intervention techniques. Our lessons align with grade level Common Core State Standards.


We also believe in cultivating well rounded youth. We’re excited to continue to offer field trips to local colleges and local business, hands on workshops involving entrepreneurship, cosmetology, fine arts, athletics, culinary skills, STEM, interview skills, financial literacy, problem solving, sexual health education, college, and career readiness and MORE.

LIFT Academy is for children aged 12-18 and will run 4 days a week Monday-Thursday from 3:30pm-8:00pm during the school year and 3:00-7:00pm during the summer. LIFT Academy is free to all participants and includes an afternoon snack and dinner.
