After School Programs

Project Kidz Connect

Our Mission

NMUSD's Expanded Learning Program will provide a safe and inclusive before-school, after-school, and summer learning environment where every student is seen, every student matters, and every student is valued. Through a creative and inspiring mentorship, every student is challenged to grow towards reaching their full potential as a thriving student today and a responsible community citizen of tomorrow.

Our Program

Our curriculum includes academics, nutrition, physical recreation, arts and enrichment that support Newport-Mesa Unified School District initiatives.

We promote diverse learning experiences designed to challenge and maximize each student’s potential.
