Connecting to lessons learned in the classroom while expanding social and emotional skill development

Our high-quality, onsite, licensed after school program engages students in visual art, filmmaking, music, puppetry, creative writing, acting, and more while expanding the development of social and emotional skills. We currently deliver after school programming to 30+ elementary and middle schools and community sites throughout greater Austin, with some sites free to the community, thanks to subsidies and public funding, and others supported by schools and parents who pay for programs directly.

For the upcoming 2022-23 school year, Creative Action’s 5-day, fee-based After School program will be at the following campuses:  

Becker Elementary

Blanton Elementary

Brentwood Elementary

Campbell Elementary

Maplewood Elementary

Reilly Elementary

Ridgetop Elementary

Winn Elementary

After School at these campuses will run every day of the Austin ISD calendar from the end of the school day until 6p. The cost per child is $310/month, with the exception of Campbell Elementary.

Sliding scale options are available based on income and school needs. Families are strongly encouraged to apply.
