YMCA Learning Academy
YMCA School Age Services



The YMCA continues to be a leader in childcare and education and we have been committed to meeting the needs of North Texas families for over 130 years.  As school districts continue to alter their plans in light of the current pandemic, we realize that parents need our support now more than ever.

YMCA Learning Academy is an in-person program supporting students who are e-learning through their school district. Y Learning Academy is sure to support your child's virtual learning and keep them active and engaged during the day.

To help your child stay on task, avoid backslides during their school's virtual learning program, and support our children’s academic, physical, and mental health the Y has created a fun, safe, controlled environment in which your child can continue their educational journey with the support of a great team. Your child will benefit from:

  • Coordination with your school district for synchronous and asynchronous instruction via Zoom, Google Hangouts, and similar apps with a certified teacher
  • Certified teacher for a portion of the day to assist with remote learning assignments
