After School Programs
CMI boasts a dynamic and inclusive after school program. Students may participate in aftercare activities, Creative Clubs, and individual music lessons. For our Middle School students, the program includes competitive sports teams and leadership activities that supports students’ creativity and problem-solving skills.
Our Aftercare Program is for students in Preschool through 4th Grade. Aftercare provides students with homework supervision, a nutritious snack, and free play, both indoors and outside. Students participate in informal activities such as chess, music, dancing, and art projects, while enjoying social interactions with their friends and academic reinforcement from our talented staff members. Our Aftercare staff consists of CMI teachers, Student Aides, childcare professionals, and local university graduate and undergraduate students. To sign up for Aftercare, please click here.
Our Creative Clubs are for students in Preschool through 4th Grade. Clubs offer targeted enrichment activities that are designed to complement the child-centered and academically rigorous instruction of our school day. Examples of popular clubs include Art, Hip Hop, Soccer, Drama, Coding, Yoga, and Mandarin. To see the current club offerings, please click here.
The Middle School Clubs are for students in 5th through 7th grade. Middle School Clubs have been designed to allow our oldest students the opportunity to make choices and exercise leadership and self-direction. Our goal is to provide a safe, healthy environment for continued learning, exploring interests, and developing skills. Students in 5th through 7th grade who are enrolled in Middle School Clubs choose their own activities from offerings that include sports teams, radio production, visual arts, and dance.

Scholarships for clubs and individual music lessons are available to students who qualify for Free & Reduced Lunch. Each term, CMI awards over 20 scholarships to students on the basis of financial need, in keeping with our mission to help all students develop their individual talents and interests. These scholarships are funded in part by the generosity of our Creative Families Association, as well as by the school, our funding partners and individual donors.
