GISC provides after-school care and extracurricular classes including After Care (supervised free play), academic programs, sports & movement, and arts & music. Students can enroll in After Care and extracurricular programs at the beginning of each semester by emailing Director of Extracurricular Programming Christiane Tacke at

After-School Care is offered from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
Session 1: 3:00-4:30 pm
Session 2: 4:30-6:00 pm
