The 21st Century program is a grant-funded FREE After school and Summer Program. We provide free opportunities for 120 “at-risk” students to participate in programs that foster Academic and Personal Enrichment development. This program runs Monday through Friday from 3:35 PM – 6:35 PM and is eligible for students in grades 3—8.

The Bears Den After School Program runs for 160 school days. This does not include Early Release days.

2019 Summer Program

Summer is approaching quickly!! Bears Den will be holding a FREE Summer Academic Enrichment Program at NBAE.
As always the summer program will focus on providing opportunities for students to participate in daily classes that emphasize academic and personal enrichment. Please note this is NOT a SUMMER CAMP. Students are expected to participate in daily through-out Academic AND Personal Enrichment Classes. Students are also expected to attend all 30 days of the Summer Program.
Students who attend the program for 25 days or more will receive a letter offering them a seat for the 2019-2020 afterschool program.
The summer program registration is currently open to all NBAE students. The lottery will be held on April 18, 2019. Parents will be notified via telephone once their child has been selected.
Applications are located under the section “Program Information and Forms”.
Please DO NOT fax applications, those will be discarded.
Submitting an application does NOT guarantee placement.
