The Poway Unified School District (PUSD) recently introduced the Family Learning Center (FLC), an after-school study program for students at Mt. Carmel High School, Black Mountain Middle School, and Los Peñasquitos Elementary School. Students have access to computers, internet, printers, counselors, and tutors to help supplement learning outside of regular school hours. The center is located on the Los Peñasquitos campus and funded by Poway Adult School, which also offers English as a Second Language (ESL) classes for adults during the week. 

“We know that success in school also includes the time, space, and resources that are available beyond the school day,” said Mt. Carmel Principal Greg Magno. “This is an opportunity to study with peers, to get questions answered, to utilize learning resources, and to access academic counseling and other student services.” The FLC is free to students, operating on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 4 to 7 p.m.
