About After School DC

After School DC is a free program operated by Arts for Learning that offers students in grades 3-5 the opportunity to engage in extended academic learning and enrichment activities every day.

After School DC is an evidence-based program providing students with:

  • A Creative & Supportive Learning Environment
  • Arts-Integrated Literacy
  • Arts Explorations
  • Field Trips

During the program, students will engage in extended academic learning and enrichment, where they will be introduced to different art forms and learn from professional teaching artists.

All classes begin with “SQUADS,” focusing on developing social-emotional skills and building a creative and caring community. Students will advance their literacy skills through arts-integrated instruction and dive deep into new arts experiences! When possible, students will move outside with their class for recess.


The health and safety of our students, staff, and families are paramount. Arts for Learning Maryland will adhere to all safety protocols outlined by our host schools.
