WE LEAP Program at NNPS

WE LEAP (Wonderful Extended Learning, Enrichment and Advancement Program) is a free after-school and Saturday enrichment program for grades 3 through 8.

In 2016, Newport News Public Schools was awarded a $2.4 million Virginia Extended School Year Grant to support afterschool, Saturday and summer learning opportunities for students. Continued funding from the Virginia Department of Education has allowed this enrichment program to continue at various elementary schools and one middle school.
