ABOUT THE ACADEMY
The Clifton Park Academy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to offering dynamic and inspiring academic and leadership development programs to assist 3rd through 12th grade students in reaching their full spiritual, academic and leadership potential. Our courses focus on providing extra curriculum for students in STEAM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics). Our main goal is to motivate students’ interests in these fields and give them an outlet for expanding their interests beyond what classes that are provided at school. The unique focus of our program is our emphasis on developing skilled and confident communicators. The Saturday Academy is open to students in the Washington, DC area and is supported by community members who volunteer their time and resources.
