Our afterschool and summer program, Power School, is designed to address the specific needs of refugee, immigrant, and asylee families. Our goal is to give our students the added support they need to be life-long learners and involved citizens by capitalizing on the many talents they already have. As a recipient of the 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant, we are able to offer daily curriculum centered around English Language Acquisition (ELA), STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts and Math) as well as access to qualified tutors for one-on-one academic support. Through group learning and growing, Power School allows students with similar lived experiences to connect and feel at home here in Westbrook.
All of our programming is free, and offered to children in grades 5 through 8 regardless of nationality, ethnicity, or religion.

Our afterschool program runs Monday through Thursday in step with the academic year. Our teachers provide daily English and Science lessons to hone students' language skills and spark new interests. Our dedicated tutors help keep them focused and feeling good about their classwork and homework.
Our summer program runs every year from June to August. Expanding upon the curriculum offered during the school year, Power Summer provides dynamic, fun, and unique learning opportunities geared towards keeping students' language skills sharp during the school break. Registration opens in the late spring.
