Welcome to Excel Beyond the Bell!

Our Excel Beyond the Bell Collaborative is a public-private partnership created by the Collaboration Council to inspire our youth to realize their full potential by offering safe, quality and accessible out-of-school time programs. Together with the Montgomery County Recreation Department and Montgomery County Public Schools, we offer the EBB Middle School Program at seven schools while striving to increase positive outcomes for youth across the county by creating and supporting a high-quality after school workforce.

"This Excel Beyond the Bell class was life-changing,” explains a 6th grader at Roberto Clemente Middle school. 

"Since my son has been here [at an EBB program], he does his homework.  He knows he has to do his homework to come here," explains a very happy Mom.  "Please keep doing this [EBB]!"
