About Our School Site
With a focus on safety, health, social growth and academic enhancement, YMCA school enrichment programs serve kindergartners through middle schoolers. Children at the YMCA explore and develop their interests and talents through a wide range of activities.
We currently offer a variety of fun activities that help children develop their academic and social skills in an enriching atmosphere. Educational and recreational opportunities are offered in an environment that allows children to develop at their own pace, working independently and in a group setting. A strong emphasis is placed in our daily programming on the YMCA five core values of love, respect, honesty, responsibility and service.
School District Calendar
For information about our year long schedule check out the Portland School District calendar. We have a late opening once a month.
Everyone is welcome at the Y. We offer financial assistance for families that qualify.
Also, in partnership with the Family of Heather Jean Fitzsimmons, the YMCA of Columbia-Willamette is privileged to offer a YMCA scholarship in honor of her memory. This scholarship provides tuition assistance to families in need in order to help kids gain access to a loving and caring after school environment. The scholarship is available to families at Arthur Academy Portland School and Vestal Elementary School.
