Our Mission 

Lake Elsinore Unified School District EXCEL Expanded Learning Program is committed to providing children in our community with high quality, no-cost Expanded Learning Programs. These opportunities, beyond the regular school day, will empower students and build academic skills, enrich health and wellness while supporting students socially and emotionally. Students will discover talents and interests that can potentially invite them to explore exciting options for their future and engage in their community in a safe and encouraging environment to reach their full potential in school and in life. EXCEL Before and After School programs are available at ALL Elementary, TK-8 and Middle Schools in LEUSD and will provide enrichment opportunities at no-cost in STEAM, Academic Support in ELA and Math, Visual and Performing arts and Physical Fitness/Sports.


Providing a clear sense of purpose to all students in the LEUSD community through the EXCEL Expanded Learning program is necessary to promote academic achievement, provide enrichment and support for those in poverty or with safety, housing, health and wellness insecurities. LEUSD uses Expanded Learning Opportunities Program and After-School Education and Safety Program funding to provide EXCEL programing.
