School Enrichment

Excel at the Y!


The YMCA of Catawba Valley is pleased to collaborate with school educators to provide an out-of-school remote enrichment program at the Adrian L. Shuford, Jr., YMCA and at the Hickory Foundation YMCA. Our program is designed to offer:

  • Remote Learning & Academic enrichment: Our YMCAs are Wi-Fi friendly and we will provide dedicated space for access to remote learning sessions. The Y will commit to closing the academic achievement gap by providing trained education professionals to aid student’ educational progress, engagement and outcomes.

  • Play & Socialization: Kids have the opportunity to explore, try new activities, swim in our pools, utilize the climbing tower, gain independence, and make lasting friendships and memories.

  • Flexible Scheduling Options: Our YMCA will provide needed flexibility for families that include options for 1 day, 3 day or 5 day programming per week. We will offer Financial Assistance and accept DSS vouchers.
