After School Program The goal of the After School Program is to inspire a love of learning and discovery. In addition to academic support the center strives to bring new methods of academic and creative discovery. This is made possible through our community partnerships and resources. These community partners include Ball State, Purdue Extension and the 4-H Club. This program is directly under the coordination of the education coordinator, Rachel Foster, any questions or concerns should be directed to her. (See contact information listed at the end of this document.)

Demographics: Kids grades K-5
The afterschool program supports kids from Muncie community schools as well as for us in Muncie‘s homeschool population.
