This Spring, LAEF is also providing 15 virtual World Language classes to 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders across Los Alamitos Unified School District. Nearly 350 students enrolled in these free virtual classes, ranging from Mandarin and Japanese to Spanish, French and American Sign Language. LAEF’s goal is to expose children to languages they can pursue further in their secondary education. Parents and students alike are delighted with the program and excited to see it continue.

Popular after-school classes included Truly Weird Science, Cheer, Basketball, Golf, Chess, Game Building, Coding, Art Exploration, Music Theater and STEAM Central.

LAEF was able to enrich the learning experience of 50 additional students this Spring by continuing to offer tuition scholarships, thanks to the support of grant donors like the Roosters of Orange County and the Miller Foundation.

Registration is open for LAEF’s Spring Session 2 after-school program, offering many of the popular classes enjoyed in the first session, as well as some fun additions including Marine Biology, Theater-Young Directors, Pickleball, Leadership Academy and a Speed and Agility fitness class.
