About Our Program
CLS is an independent and local organization founded in 2006 with the mission of creating an educational, affordable, safe and high quality environment for children after school. When CLS began, its purpose was to foster a strong interest for foreign-language acquisition at the elementary-school level. With the growth of the program, CLS has evolved into a complete after-school option that offers language classes as well as other exciting enrichment activities.
The Language Program aims to foster a strong interest in languages and to build a foundation for foreign-language acquisition. The program has three components: a suite of language classes, a fun, activities-based afternoon program designed to create interest in language study and a regular after school program. Parents can choose activities according to their children's interests and age.
We understand that students need to be engaged in their learning through programs that fit their personalities and learning styles. Therefore, we proudly offer a variety of flexible options in our course offerings.
