  • Teens wearning backpacks walking down hallwayThe Learning, Enrichment, And Play (LEAP) program offers secure, supervised learning and play experiences that enhance the time a child spends away from home and school. The LEAP program also offers a Teen Extended Day (TED) program providing secure, supervised academic enrichment.  

    All LEAP sites are licensed facilities located at each elementary school within the Marana Unified School District for students enrolled in pre-K through sixth grade. K-8 schools within the Marana Unified School District offer both a LEAP site (preK-5th grades) and a TED program (6-8th grades). 

    LEAP and TED offers academic support, art, physical education, and hands-on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities geared to academically challenge and engage students in a creative and fun way. The variety of activities offered are designed to promote social growth and development through homework help, literacy, math and science activities, healthy habits, and physical fitness.
