Community Education

The Community Education department is truly an extension of Guntersville City Schools.  Our purpose is to serve the students in the school system as well as their families. 

We are partners with community organizations such as Marshall County Christmas Coalition, Blessings in a Backpack of Guntersville, the Heart of the Valley YMCA in Huntsville, AL and many local businesses.  These partnerships provide our schools with necessary resources to meet needs, enrich lives and further develop the students into well-rounded, successful and productive individuals.   

Through our partnership with the Heart of the Valley YMCA, we offer exceptional after school programming at Guntersville Elementary School and Cherokee Elementary School serving grades K - 5 under the guidelines of a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant.  With the Federal grant award, the Extended Adventures after school program provides academic support, enrichment opportunities, and health and wellness activities at no cost to the family.  A nutritious and substantial snack is provided through the Child Nutrition Program for all of the students who attend.  Additionally, the 21st CCLC Power Scholars Summer Academy provides these same opportunities in a fun filled summer camp for Kindergarten completers through rising Fifth graders at no cost to the family.

Guntersville Middle School offers an afterschool program as well through the Community Education department.  The weekly fee for this service is $50.00 per week with a sliding scale for those who qualify for reduced or free meal eligibility.  Please contact Community Education or Guntersville Middle School to register to attend.
