GOALS Academy is a Title IV federally funded grant program through 21st Century Community Learning Centers. The acronym GOALS stands for Giving Opportunities to Aspiring Leaders and Scholars. Through GOALS, the students of Cleveland Avenue Elementary School are provided with opportunities in the areas of STEM, the arts, field experiences, and so much more!
The vision of GOALS Academy (GA) is to broaden students’ scope of understanding in core academic areas, expand their cultural capital, help them apply new knowledge, and to fully support the Cleveland Avenue Elementary (CAE) community of students, parents and families.
The GOALS Academy mission is to provide a dynamic afterschool program that will give students an opportunity to continue to develop their academic skills and extend their learning far beyond the traditional academic day. GOALS Academy will not only focus on the needs of the students at CAE, but will provide an academic experience that educates the “whole” child, creates long-lasting community partnerships, and develops an academic community which is conducive for learning and will enrich the lives of our students and their families.
