More than 80% of the student body is involved in Community School's After School Program. Three options are available: childcare, homework help, and enriching classes. 

Extended Day

Our childcare program is available for all grades. Extended Day strives to provide a supportive, home-like environment for children. Outdoor games, creative play, crafts, and quiet time for reading and/or homework are scheduled for the children. A daily snack is provided. Extended Day also meets during faculty professional days and conference days, as well as most school holidays from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Homework Club

Homework Club is designed to assist fourth through sixth grade students in the management and completion of homework and long-term assignments. It is not meant to be a tutoring class, but rather an opportunity for students to practice and master time management and organizational skills. Students meet with experienced homework advisors to discuss assignments, organize materials, and establish long- and short-term goals. A nutritious snack and exercise are offered each day. 

Homework Club meets Monday through Thursday; two days minimum enrollment is required. 

Mini Classes

Mini Classes provide a variety of after school experiences, with a wide range of offerings such as tennis, pickleball, art, gymnastics, chess, LEGO robotics, and dance. Topics offer students in junior kindergarten through sixth grade an opportunity to explore exciting and enticing academic and non-academic areas. Classes are often taught by Community School teachers, although community organizations such as STAGES, COCA, and Mad Science of St. Louis also regularly provide classes.
