About I.C.A.R.E. Academy

After School programs boost academic performance, reduce risky behaviors, promote physical health, and provide a safe, structured environment for the children of working parents. Extracurricular activities allow students to make a contribution to their school and community, which is an important step in preparing them for life outside of academics.

I.C.A.R.E. Academy’s Aftercare and Summer Care programs aim to provide recreational, social, and educational interventions to at-risk, inner city youth using “ILPs” (Independent Life Plans). Our program gives students from all over the city the opportunity to immerse themselves in the empowering culture of entertainment.

I.C.A.R.E. Academy’s program activities focus on using Internet, Culture, Arts, Recreation, and “Edu-tainment” to engage education through the arts. We also aim to provide our students with the opportunity to bring their art outside of the program’s walls and showcase it to the real world. We are Real People In Real Time Producing Real Results!
