I attended WCCC from first through eighth grade and loved every minute of it, especially the UMS program. In the UMS After School Program, students have much more freedom and independence. At UMS I had the opportunity to get all or most of my increasing amounts of homework done in a quiet environment before I got home. There were lots of fun games to play (such as flash light tag in the winter on the fields)! The middle school WCCC program introduced me to kids who I probably wouldn’t have known otherwise and with whom I am close friends, and provided me with a space to eat a snack, get some homework done and play games or read a good book after school.” ~ Emily
