• Viking Quest/21st Century Afterschool Program

    The Viking Quest/21st Century Afterschool program is free of charge and open to students in the Normandy Schools Collaborative. This program is the result of a community partnership between the Normandy Schools Collaborative and community organization Better Family Life, designed to provide a safe haven for students while providing fun activities, educational support & enrichment opportunities.

    The initiative, Viking Quest 21st Century Afterschool Program, is designed to provide a safe haven for students in the afterschool hours while addressing their educational enrichment and social needs. This free-of-charge program offers a full array of services based on the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) model.

    “The program is designed to build upon the regular school day instruction by providing youth academic assistance, cultural opportunities and character development,” said Tina Clark-Scott, assistant superintendent for  Academics and Student Support Services. “The afterschool program responds to the needs of children and families in our community by offering them safe and supportive programs while allowing the Collaborative and our partners with BFL to measure the outcomes to help ensure positive results.”

    The Normandy Viking Quest-21st Century program can accommodate a minimum of 285 students from the Collaborative’s four elementary schools, and the middle and high schools. Transportation home and a light meal are provided.

    • Culinary & Fine Arts
