The 21c program, which started in 2012, provides very helpful academic activities to students at Concord High School.
Teachers include Susan Farrelly, Linda Moulton, Charles Swift, Ghana Sharma and others. The purpose of this federally funded program is to engage kids in learning activities that will help them more than going home and watching TV.
To make it possible for students to stay on campus late, the program also provides snacks and transportation by way of a late bus.
“The 5:30 bus will bring students back to their homes as usual,” said Sharma.
Students who want to participate need to fill out a form. They can attend as many or as few times as they’d like depending on their assignment and upcoming exams.
“We are open to everybody,” said Moulton, who is supervisor of 21C.
She said sessions work this way: “Take a light snack, get ready to work, take out your assignment, ask for help and get the full concept of anything that you haven’t understood in your class.”
21C programming takes place in the Student Center. For more information, see Moulton in the 21C office (just outside Commons A).
