Out of School Time Programming
LINK Club is a FREE after school program offered by Alexandria City Public Schools at select schools and community sites. The program is designed to prepare participating students for the challenges and opportunities of today and tomorrow by addressing their comprehensive needs through a whole-child approach.
LINK Club supports what is occurring in our school classrooms through academic tutoring and engaging project-based learning activities. In addition to academic support, students are provided a safe space to interact with their peers and participate in fun enrichment and recreation activities during the critical hours of 3:00pm to 6:00pm, Monday through Friday, when many parents are at work.
*The program is by invitation only and based on the student's academic and social-economic needs.
