Academic Enhancement For The Future Of Our Children
Fort Bend Education Center and After School Program (FBEC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving high poverty communities, high risk children, working families, and low performing schools. Our mission is to provide a safe, caring, and nurturing environment where all children can achieve academic excellence and high self-esteem, while improving socialization skills. The goal is for children to become respectful, responsible, lifelong learners, and contributing citizens of their communities.
Our after school program provides students with educational enhancement, skill development, and service learning opportunities designed to complement their regular academic program. Tutorial sessions are also provided to enhance math, reading, writing, and science skills. The goal is to assist students in achieving, and/or even exceeding, state and local standards in core academics. Attending college is just a dream for many children, but our goal is to make it a readily accessible reality. College preparation courses will provide students with the confidence to apply and be accepted into college. Children of all ages must understand that learning is a proud accomplishment that we can all achieve.
FBEC provides academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours, and educational programs for infants and toddlers during school hours.
There is a high demand for educational programs and after school events:
- Between 1998–99 & 2004–05, the mathematics SAT average score increased by 9 points, but it declined by 6 points between 2004–05 & 2010–11. The critical reading average score in 2010–11 (497) was 8 points lower than in 1998–99. The writing average score in 2010–11 (489) was 8 points lower than in 2005–06, the year in which the SAT writing section was introduced. (U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics, 2012)
- The parents of more than 28 million school-age children work outside the home. (U.S. Departments of Labor)
- At least 7 million and as many as 15 million “latchkey children” go home to an empty house on any given afternoon. (U.S. Census Bureau, Urban Institute estimate, 2000)
- Children are more likely to be involved in crime, substance abuse and teenage pregnancy in the hours after school, particularly between 3:00 and 4:00. (National Center for Juvenile Justice, 1999)
In addition to the regular curriculum, students will enjoy fun filled activities that will encourage them to be creative, adventurous, and confident. The staff will consistently acknowledge the student’s accomplishments and encourage them to continue in their success.
Our vision is to be a community of lifelong learners in which all students appreciate education and assume responsibility for their learning.
Fort Bend Education Center and Afterschool Program is an extension of the regular school day. Students may engage in activities such as arts and crafts, recreational sports, tutoring in core subjects, and much more. Wide varieties of alternatives are available to keep the program attractive, thought-provoking, and most of all fun for the children.
