Are all students welcomed at Elevate?

Yes and no. Any students going into 6-12th grades are welcomed at Elevate. We would love to one day welcome our elementary students. 

Is Elevate free for students?

YES! All of the program elements are done through grants, donations, and giving of individuals and businesses. 

Is Elevate a community program?

YES! Elevate is a community program created to raise students to a whole new level.  Because Elevate is a community program, we are able to partner with Missouri Extension, Community Partnership of the Ozarks, and local churches. We are grateful for the generosity and support of these partnerships.

Are students allowed to leave Elevate when they want?

Due to safety reasons, students will only be allowed to leave with the permission of a parent and/or guardian. We want to make sure to keep the safety of our students a priority while maintaining an environment that is safe for all who attend. 

How does the program work?

Students who drive will be allowed to check in at 3:00 pm and students who don't, will have a shuttle bus pick them up at the Middle School and bring them Elevate.  At this time all students will be checked in, bags put in a secure area, snack will be offered, cafe will be open (at a cost), and mentors will meet up with their members to start their club.  All students will need to be picked up no later than 5:30 pm. 

What are the operating hours of Elevate?

At this time, our operating hours are every Tuesday from 3:00-5:30.  We hope to one day expand those days and times.  Elevate will operate on the school districts calendar. Elevate will follow the school districts cancellation policies.
