This quantitative research study was designed to examine the impact of a 21st Century Community Learning Center afterschool program on students identified as at risk. The research study focused on three research areas. First, the study examined the number of Carnegie credits earned during the 2017-2018 school year. Second, the research studied the number of school days absent during the 2017-2018 school year. Finally, the study reviewed the number of disciplinary incidents that required administrative intervention during the same school year. The study utilized a chi-square test of homogeneity to determine if there was a statistically significant difference between at-risk students who attended the program and those who did not in the area of academic progression, attendance, and disciplinary incidents for the 2017-2018 school year at a rural high school in South Carolina. Analysis found there was no statistically significant differences in academic credits earned, attendance, or disciplinary incidents between the two groups of students.
