Help Your Student Find Their Center Again

To support JCC families, and in coordination with the various learning environments throughout the communities we serve, the JCC is proud to introduce Student Center.

At Student Center, your child can:

  • Interact with other kids
  • Run and play in large indoor and outdoor spaces
  • Rediscover free play that is screen-free
  • Enjoy free swim in our indoor aquatics center
  • Visit JCC Rainbow Day Camp for outdoor adventures

While parents and caregivers can:

  • Focus on responsibilities at work, home, or in the community
  • Partner with JCC experts in virtual school success
  • Ensure their children are enjoying a well-rounded day
  • Invest in their child’s long term educational, social, and physical growth
  • Rest easier as they balance the ever-changing realities of an uncertain world

Our dedicated, knowledgeable educators offer:

  • Safe, enriching environment that promotes learning
  • Academic support with a focus on reading, writing and math
  • Time management assistance for students
  • Oversight of student’s accountability for completed school work
  • Team approach to communication with both parents and classroom teachers

Supporting your child’s learning and social-emotional health is our #1 priority. Let us offer your child a place to belong in a time of uncertainty.
