What is the After School Safety and Education for Teens (ASSETs) Program?
ASSETs is designed to provide expanded learning opportunities for high school students outside of the regular school day (California Education Code [EC] sections 8420–8428). Schools that are awarded the ASSETs grant partner with community organizations or individuals to provide academic assistance, educational enrichment, and family literacy services.
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015 funds the 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant which, in turn, provides funding for the ASSETs program.
Which schools offer the ASSETs Program?
Antioch High School was awarded the ASSETs grant for 2018 through 2023. The ASSETs program at Antioch High is commonly known as ‘Club ROAR!’

Club ROAR! offers a variety of programs and activities every school day. Tutors are available in the library to provide homework help every school day, and Club Fit is also open daily.
