Leadership Enrichment After-School Programs (LEAP)
Whether it’s expressing yourself on stage, trying a new sport for the first time, or learning creative ways to use technology, Leadership Enrichment After-School Programs (LEAP) are a great way for middle school students to have fun (and learn a thing or two!). Best of all, all programs are FREE!

Why is LEAP important to our students?
LEAP programming maximizes student participation in out-of-school activities engaging students with diverse interests. LEAP benefits our students by:
- providing opportunities for those who may not already be involved with clubs or sports to try new activities and build self-confidence
- creating stronger personal connections to school and peer groups
- providing free tutoring and homework help
- offering a safe environment during hours when many parents are still at work
LEAP activities were made possible through an Iowa 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant from the Iowa Department of Education. As part of the grant program that generously supported the LEAP Program, the district had an annual evaluation of the program. The report is available for review below:
