Roanoke City Schools

This school year, we have adapted our program to meet the needs of our participants and families. Our Y Enrichment Centers provide families an all-day program option with a focus on virtual learning support, enrichment, and physical activity. We also offer an after school program for children ages 5-12 years old attending Roanoke City Public Schools.

The health and safety of our children, staff, and families is our top priority and we will be following guidelines as set forth by the Virginia Health Department, state, and local officials. Due to these guidelines we will be taking children on a first-come, first-serve basis and limiting attendance to match the guidelines. 

Even though this year looks different, our commitment to providing our children with a fun and engaging place to learn, and our parents an environment where their children are being well cared for remains the same.

ENRICHING MINDS INSIDE AND OUT

We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Our enrichment curriculum provides children with the opportunity to explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. Children will participate in monthly themed enrichment activities to include: arts, sports, STEM, and more throughout the school year!
