The Camden School District is a co-recipient of a Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) grant which facilitates after school modules for students in Grades K-8. All modules are taught by Camden faculty. Session 1, which starts in early January, is offered to students in grades 2-8. Session 2, which is offered from March to June, expands the age range of our program to students in grades K-8. Below is a description of what students are learning in Session 1.
