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]!"

  • FY15 Spending Bill for Congress Includes Increases for Afterschool

    In December, Congress passed a spending bill that funds most federal programs through September 30, 2015. The bill includes language that emphasizes the importance of afterschool and summer programs, saying that “data demonstrates that quality afterschool programs have a positive impact on a number of measures of student academic achievement, positively affecting behavior and discipline and helping relieve parents’ worries about their children’s safety during the hours when school is out."
