Owens Cross Roads Community Learning Center (OCRCLC)

Owens Cross Roads 21st Century Community Learning Center (OCRCLC) is a ministry of The CARE Center funded in part by various grant funds and partnerships. In 2016, The CARE Center and Owens Cross Roads School collaborated together and were awarded a 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) grant from the Alabama State Dept of Education which afforded a state of the art, high-quality after school and summer experience for our students. Additional funding from United Way of Madison County Community Impact grant supplements programmatic costs not allowable by 21stCCLC.

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, math, reading, and art. Students also enjoy character education and social-emotional learning programs that teach children how to resolve and cope with many of today’s issues. We also create service-learning opportunities which teach students to give back to their community.

OCRCLC is in session during the school year Monday- Friday from 2:45-5:30PM. We also provide a fun, high-quality, 5-week summer camp experience. OCRCLC serves students in grades Kindergarten-4th who are zoned for Owens Cross Roads School. There is no fee associated with attending our program.
