Success or failure as a human being is not a matter of luck, circumstances, fate or any of the other tiresome old cliches. Those are only excuses.



Our After-School program includes student activities in three areas:
Academic: Involves homework assistance, tutoring, literacy/reading program and FCAT preparation.
Recreational: Includes athletics, volleyball, arts and crafts, music, dancing, computer games, video games and arcade games.
Social: Comprises; planning & decision making skills, interpersonal skills, cultural awareness and conflict resolution.
The Wayne Barton Study Center maintains a high quality after-school program with a strong academic focus; we strive to provide the students with a safe environment that is supervised by caring, competent and supportive staff. In addition to promoting nurturing relationships with adults, the WBSC promotes the development of young people by instilling a sense of competency, usefulness and belonging.

High school students are normally in the classroom from 3:30 to 5:30.
Middle school students are normally in the classroom from 4:00 to 5:30.
Middle and high school students who participate in other after-school activities may come to the Center’s classrooms from 5:30 to 7:00.
Each enrolled student is assigned to a specific classroom and scheduled time for reading comprehension, math and homework assistance. They are expected to be in their classroom on time every school day. A variety of recreational, physical fitness and individual-study activities are offered for non-classroom time and each student is free to make use of all of them. Students are allowed to leave the Center at 5:30 or 7:00 with parent’s written permission or being accompanied by a parent.
