We offer a wide range of Academic Enrichment classes for kids of all ages, which helps make the most of those after-school hours. Our quality instructors and a specialized curriculum give kids opportunities to extend their horizons, discover new skills and truly enjoy learning.
Below are just a few examples of our Academic Enrichment classes:
Computer lessons – Your child will learn practical computer programs, such as Microsoft Word and Excel in a fun environment. The class also includes time to practice, in order to develop confidence on the computer.
Creative writing – This enrichment class is perfect to encourage your child’s imagination, creativity and writing skills. There are a variety of exercises, including teacher-modeled writing, shared writing, and independent writing. Topics include journaling, poetry, journalism, story writing, character development, and more.
Science - Our hands-on science program is one of our most popular enrichment programs. Your child will engage in exciting hands-on activities, watch fun demonstrations, participate in inquiry-based discussions, and discover the world around them through activities such as robotics, urban gardening, and coding.
Cartooning - Do your kids love to draw? Would they enjoy learning drawing techniques? In this fun class, they’ll learn how to replicate some of their favorite cartoons, while developing their own animated characters.
After-school learning = After-school fun.
Our after-school program will turn your child’s academic challenges into a learning experience. The homework club is a drop-in afterschool program that provides homework assistance, recreation, swimming, sports, educational support, daily snacks, enrichment clubs and more – all from the safety and comfort of the Culver-Palms Family YMCA!
The Culver-Palms Family YMCA offers parents the peace of mind of knowing that their middle school child is in a place where they can safely finish their homework, work on community projects, get active through fitness and games, and meet and make new friends.

Students may also sign up for addition enrichment classes, including swimming lessons break dance and Model United Nations. We also offer monthly field trips, which include ice skating, miniature golf, the movies and much more!
