Cowboy Academy is our District's out of school time program. This program is funded by the 21st Century Community Learning Centers federal grant. The overall goal of the program is to provide an array of enrichment services intended to reinforce and complement the regular academic program and meaningful family engagement opportunities outside of school time. This program enables us to offer a FREE out of school time program that includes: a nutritious snack, homework help, physical fitness activities, and disguised learning (academic enrichment: arts, sciences, career exploration, hands-on-learning, etc.).
