Zilker Elementary After School

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.
  • The cost for the 2018-19 school year is $248/month/child but we do offer financial aid for those that qualify
