The Head Strong Middle School after-school program for middle school students runs Monday through Thursday and works to ensure that youth are at grade level and successful in school through homework tutorial, reading and math curriculum, leadership development, creative arts, nutrition and physical education, and Christian character development.

Homework Tutorial

Students start the day by meeting with high quality tutors who ensure that students understand the complete their homework on a daily basis.  The tutor to student ratio is never more than 2:1, and is 1:1 for students with high needs.

Blue Jay LLC Drama Program

Children work with professional singer and drama major Shani Akihla Jonson on the basics of acting and stage production and work together to create and produce their own play.  Shani incorporates principles of self-esteem, respect, and student empowerment to help the children grow in their self-image and in their creative potential.


Chester County Food Bank Cooking Class

Once a week students meet with a professional chef contracted by the Chester County Food Bank to learn about cooking and healthy lifestyle.  The students have the opportunity to help prepare a variety of healthy dishes and get to sample a wide range of recipes.


Music Lessons

CKC also provides music lessons to middle school students in flute, guitar, keyboard, saxophone, and music production.  Students are matched up with instruments that they are interested in and then are scheduled for lessons several times a week.


Computer Lab / Gym Time

In addition to our scheduled enrichment classes, children also are able to develop their computer skills and physical fitness in our computer lab and gym spaces.
