Launch Into Learning

MCM is proud to offer After-School programming to a limited number of children in grades PreK4-5th grade in response to the need our community has for safe and educational learning spaces for Spring 2021! We currently offer transportation for students from McWillie Elementary, Wells APAC and Obama Magnet.

At this time, MCM has met capacity for the remainder of the school year. Please check back July 1st for registration for the 2021-2022 school year.
