The Schuylkill Achieve program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide
academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who
attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps students meet state and local student
standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of
enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers literacy and other
educational services to the families of participating children.
