Los Alamitos Education Foundation’s Fall After-School Enrichment Program begins on Sept. 5 for Weaver Elementary and Sept. 11 for the rest of the district.

The program provides children across all nine Los Alamitos Unified School District sites with a diverse array of enriching educational experiences.

This fall, LAEF is offering more than 145 classes guided by credentialed and highly qualified teachers ensuring that participating students have access to outstanding opportunities for growth and learning.

LAEF will continue offering free Virtual World Language classes to first- through fifth-graders across the district. More than 300 students enrolled in these free classes last Spring, ranging from Mandarin and Japanese to Spanish, French and American Sign Language. LAEF’s goal is to expose children to languages they can pursue further in their secondary education.

“We are grateful to our community for their unwavering support, enabling LAEF to extend the gift of language learning to even more young minds. The opportunity to expose students to these incredible languages lays the foundation for a lifetime of exploration and growth,” said Mike Kahn, LAEF programs manager.

LAEF’s After-School Fall Enrichment Program is more than just a collection of classes; it’s an invitation for students to explore, discover, and flourish. With a diverse range of offerings spanning arts, sciences, athletics, and technology, ensuring that students not only have fun but also broaden their horizons.

LAEF continues to facilitate even more participation by offering tuition scholarships, thanks to the support of grant donors such as Run Seal Beach and our major donor group, the Los Al Leadership Circle. For more information or to register your student for classes, please visit
