Nita M. Lowey 21st CCLC Mullica ACES Program GOALS and MISSION STATEMENT
It is our vision to offer high quality, hands on and inquiry based opportunities in an afterschool environment to all registered
participants that will yield improved academic achievement, positive behavior, social interaction and parental involvement
while preparing students for the 21st Century.
The Mullica Township Schools’ 21stCCLC ACES is dedicated to providing a safe environment facilitated by nurturing adults
where opportunities in academic remediation and enrichment, positive youth development, culture and the arts,
health/nutrition/fitness and physical activity are provided. Opportunities and activities and programming for parental
involvement are also offered.
ACES provides the following services to registered students:
• Remediation and enrichment in math, science and language arts
• Tutoring & Counseling
• The Arts: Cultural, Visual and Performing
• Character Education
• Physical Fitness/Health and Wellness

Attendance is vital for our ACES Program to receive federal funding. Students are required to “check-in” for program reporting
purposes. Mullica ACES needs 151 students to register a minimum of 30 days attendance to receive continued funding.
Our ACES Program Schedule is based upon the Mullica Township School District Instructional Model approved by the Mullica
Township Board of Education and the School Restart and Reopening Plan for 2020-2021, as submitted to the New Jersey
Department of Education. The 21stCCLC ACES Calendar will mirror the School District Calendar, and is subject to change.
