Call for Enrichment Providers
San Jose Charter Academy (SJCA) is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with 6crickets to manage and support enrichment programs starting in Summer 2022. The goal of the program is to bring the best, most-engaging enrichment programs to students to develop the whole child and help them explore their interests, discover their passions, love learning, and build social-emotional support through interest-driven, project-driven teamwork. Our enrichment programs will teach STEM, math enrichment, chess, public speaking, art, and more.
The approach we take is community enrichment where we partner with quality enrichment providers and community partners to teach the programs on school campuses. We firmly believe that this approach fosters a win-win-win-win community: win for our students to access the best enrichment, win for our families to have the best out-of-school time support, win for our community partners and small businesses to impact more children, and win for SJCA to have an efficient, high quality enrichment operation.
We are soliciting applications from passionate enrichment organizations, businesses, community partners, and individuals who love creative teaching and have a proven track record of teaching engaging enrichment programs. SJCA serves students in Grade K-8 in West Covina, CA. The SJCA enrichment programs are funded by grants.
We look forward to receiving your applications and partnering to bring the best enrichment to SJCA students. If you have any questions, please email [email protected]. Thank you!
