Flipside About Us

About the Program21st

Flipside is a 21st Century Community Learning Center afterschool program available to students grades 5-8 at 4 schools in Marion County: East Fairmont, West Fairmont, Mannington and Rivesville Middle Schools. Our program supports students by focusing on Social and Emotional Engagement, Academic Engagement, Healthy Living, and Positive Life Skills. We will do that by promoting:

  • Academics
    • Flipside provides students with at least 30 minutes of targeted homework help daily, as well as weekly Literacy and Mathematics tutoring. Additionally, activities such as independent reading, book club, math centers, and a supplemental STEAM curriculum will be utilized to ensure an academically engaging program for participants.  
  • Wellness
    • Flipside commits to providing an afterschool program that supports students in the making of smart choices about their health and wellness. Flipside provides daily wellness activities that focus on nutrition, physical exercise, and making healthy choices. Additionally, our programming aims to support students in their emotional development and will offer weekly activities that are intentionally designed to develop critical skills including self-awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills.
  • Enrichment
    • Flipside aims to create an engaging environment that students want to be a part of. By providing daily enrichment activities in the arts and sciences we can assure families that their students will enjoy their time at our program.


Flipside is also proud to serve as the host for our Flipside AmeriCorps program.


Flipside operates Monday-Friday from school dismissal until 6pm and follows the Marion County School Calendar. Students receive a daily meal via our partnership with the Office of Child Nutrition and are offered transportation home from the program.  


We recognize that in order to help your students succeed academically, we must first address their emotional and mental health needs.

The following links will take you to resources specifically designed to help parents and families support their students' mental health

It doesn't have to be scary thinking about what your student wants to do after High School Graduation. That's why we've compiled some resources for you and your child so that you can be prepared for the future.
