We have several after school options for you.  To register for any of them, you will sign up directly with the provider or teacher.  There are four types of after-school options. 

1. Teacher-Run classes: These classes are taught by our ICS teachers.  Kindergarten and 1st graders can enroll for classes held at 55 Willoughby Street.  2nd through 5th graders can enroll for classes held at 9 Hanover Place.  Other than the Hebrew class, students will NOT be walking between buildings this year.

2. On-site classes through external providers: These classes are run by outside providers, and taught at ICS.  Just like the teacher-run programs your child can enroll in a class that takes place in their building.  Students will NOT be walking between buildings. 

3. Off-Site After-School Programs that will pick up from ICS: These programs have agreed to pick-up children at both ICS locations and walk them to their facility. Most offsite providers have an extended day offer. Some will return kids to back to ICS at the end of the day.

4. Kids Orbit: This is our in-house full-afternoon program

Financial Aid is available. Please fill out this form on the ICS website to apply.  The Family Organization will be providing financial assistance for Teacher-Run classes only.
