Gurley 21st Century Community Learning Center (GCLC) is a division of The CARE Center funded by a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant. In 2016, The CARE Center and Madison County Elementary School collaborated together and were awarded a 21st CCLC grant from the Alabama State Department of Education. Our goal is to create a safe, caring environment for the students where learning is disguised as fun. Our program focuses on building student skills in science, technology, engineering and math, reading, and art. Students also enjoy character education programs that teach children how to resolve many of today’s issues and service learning projects that teach students to give back to their community.
GCLC is in session during the school year Monday- Friday from 2:45-5:30 PM. We also provide a fun summer camp experience through our Power Scholar Academy, which is a partnership between The CARE Center, Heart of The Valley YMCA, SAIL, and MCES. GCLC serves students in grades Kindergarten-8th who are zoned for the Madison County Elementary School. There is no fee associated with attending our program.
