2021-22 AFTER SCHOOL: Now accepting applications

To ensure COVID-19 health and safety measures are met, all Creative Action After School programs will operate at a reduced capacity for the 2021-22 school year. Therefore, we are conducting a lottery-style registration waitlist process and applications are required for ALL potential students. This is not a first come, first served process and completing an application does not guarantee your child a spot. Please note, you must complete the form for each child you wish to enroll.

We are accepting applications for the lottery April 30 through May 21. After May 21, the lottery will close.

FINANCIAL AID: Financial aid questions are included on the application form. Financial aid is one way we strive to match or exceed a school’s diversity of racial and economic demographics.

NEXT STEPS: Selected families will be given instructions on registering their child/children by June 10. Families will have through June 21 to register. If your family is not selected, you will get the opportunity too enroll on our waitlist on June 22. We strongly encourage families to register for the waitlist as we may have more spaces open when standards outlined by the CDC and Austin Public Health change.

Due to lack of space, we will not provide After School at Gullett Elementary or Bryker Woods Elementary for the 2021-22 school year.

Program Overview

Our high-quality, onsite, licensed after school program engages students in visual art, filmmaking, music, puppetry, creative writing, acting, and more to deepen connections to lessons learned in the classroom, all while expanding the development of social and emotional skills. Students participate in hands-on activities led by professional teaching artists to create projects that improve the community and the world around them.

  • After school runs every day of the AISD calendar from the end of the school day until 6 p.m.
  • Cost for the 2021-22 school year is $285/month/child (with the exception of Campbell Elementary) from August – May. We also offer financial aid for those that qualify.
  • All After School programs include snack time, free play, arts programming, and opportunities for homework.

At the end of each semester, students’ family and friends are invited to join us for a showcase where students display special projects they’ve worked on during Creative Action After School!

“We love Creative Action. My children have gained confidence, learned how to navigate social relationships, value diversity and are encouraged to be creative in a respectful environment.”
