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: These enrichment classes are taught by our ICS teachers.  Kindergarten and 1st graders can enroll for classes held at 55 Willoughby Street.  2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders can enroll for classes held at 9 Hanover Place.  Students will NOT be walking between buildings this year.

2. On-Site After-School Programs: These classes are run by outside companies 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.

4. Kids Orbit: This is our in-house after-school program.

Financial Aid is available. Please fill out this form on the ICS website to apply.  The Family Organization will be providing financial aid for those who would like to enroll in Teacher-Run classes.  Be sure to check that box on the ICS form and your name will be passed along confidentially to the coordinator in charge of FO Scholarships.  ICS also provides scholarships for other programs.  That information is on their website as well.
