Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! We are excited to start another school year with great news. iLearn Schools was awarded the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) federal grant to provide academic support and enrichment to our students and community. iLearn Academy, funded by the 21st CCLC, will provide fourth through eighth grade students with a comprehensive and supplemental program comprised of learning and enrichment opportunities delivered during after school hours on our Paterson, Passaic, Bergen, and Hudson middle school campuses.

iLearn Academy – The 21st CCLC Program will operate Monday through Friday from 3:15 – 6:10 p.m. every day when regular school is in session, except for on half days.

The wide variety of programs offered will improve students’ academic performance, promote positive social behavior, and encourage appropriate interaction with peers. This program will also make a positive impact on our students during an important transitional stage, and will help them to become more productive citizens.

iLearn Academy – 21st CCLC Program will offer one hour of ELA and MATH tutoring. The second hour will be for homework support provided by school teachers and paraprofessionals. The final hour of the program will consist of a comprehensive recreational offering of classes such as: Open Gym Sports, the School Play, Acting, Jewelry Making, Crochet, Robotics, Programming, Zumba, Chess, Lego, and Gardening.

iLearn Academy – 21st CCLC Program will also coordinate monthly family nights, field trips, community service, guest speakers, assemblies, parenting workshops, mentoring programs, PARCC preparation, counseling services, expanded library, media hours, and daily snacks.

We encourage parent communication! Please feel free to contact your Site Coordinator on each campus with any feedback, concerns, or questions.
