CLASP tutoring programs officially begin again for students

Great things are coming to CLASP — Claremont’s independent nonprofit organization which helps students get ahead with their after school programs — including their new program director Cristina Antoniolli.

“Cristina and her husband, Chris, moved from Michigan to Claremont in 2018, and Michigan’s loss is definitely Claremont’s gain. Crisitina has an impressive background in education and has already demonstrated many of her creative strengths that will benefit CLASP. We wish her much success in her new role,” an email from CLASP read.

Following the appointment of Antoniolli, on Sunday, November 14, the community is invited to celebrate the legacy and dedication of retiring program director, Jan Creasey, with CLASP members. Creasey was the program director between 2015 and 2021.

“Festivities will include gourmet delights, wine, and live entertainment by Michael Ryan and Friends,” the news email read. Any questions about this event can be emailed to

Further into the news email, tutoring programs have begun again, officially beginning on Monday, September 20. While CLASP currently serves 57 students within their tutoring programs, ranging from in-person and online sessions, they are and will be in need of more tutors as more students sign up for tutoring. Volunteers range from high school to college-aged students.

“Our tutors are community members … without our volunteer tutors we wouldn’t be able to give our students the help they need to succeed at school,” Raydie Buckley, CLASP’s tutor coordinator said in the email.
