OUR STORY: On January 3, 2012, a team of incredible teachers and facilitators opened Clarksville Youth Enrichment Programs, a center for students to explore, design, and create in their own, unique areas of interest.
The center offers school-year sessions for Pre-K-12th graders through a variety of rigorous academic Enrichment Programs on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings. Scheduled Focus Tutoring is also available on these evenings. Wednesday and Friday options are available by appointment only.
Daily summer sessions are offered during the months of June and July for Pre-K-12th graders in a variety of areas which can be found under the “Summer Programs” tab of this website. These sessions are designed specifically to enrich students in their areas of choice, build upon their existing talents, and allow them to think and create in new and exciting ways! We are presently open for registration, and spaces are limited.
OUR TEACHERS: Below is just a sampling of the amazing, talented program facilitators who comprise our staff. We also invite, and would love, for you and your child to swing by and visit the center sometime soon to simply say hello!
