After-School International

ISM offers programs for our students to expand their learning after the school day and during school breaks.  These programs are partly funded through Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELOP) grant funds.  Please click here to review the 2022-2023 ELOP Plan which was approved by the Board of Trustees in March 2023.



ASI is open each school day. The program starts at 2:30pm for kindergarteners and 3:15pm for grades 1-8, with flexible schedules ending as late as 6:00pm. Availability is subject to staffing, and ISM COVID-19 guidelines.


For K-2 students, After-School International (ASI) combines an exciting mix of IB learner profile inspired activities and games each day. ASI provides participants with a variety of opportunities that are vibrant and relevant to their lives. We stress good communication, teamwork, perseverance, problem solving, and conflict management.


ASI for grades 3-8 students are provided the opportunity to work in a homework-friendly environment, while being able to utilize available resources on campus. The Homework Lab is staffed with individuals who are there specifically to help students use these tools. The staff is also available to guide students through assignments and help them stay on task so that they can complete their work. 



ASI is an optional paid service that complements the regular educational program at ISM, ASI is open only to currently enrolled ISM students.* To sign up for ASI, please fill out our online 2022-23 Initial Contract. Once we have received your contract, we will contact you within two business days to confirm that your paperwork is complete and the amount you will owe for the first month of care. 


*ISM offers ASI as a paid program that is not part of the regular educational program guaranteed by the State of California. As such, ASI access is not guaranteed to any individual. ISM reserves the right to limit the number of participants on a first-come, first-served basis depending on available staffing and facilities. ISM also reserves the right to temporarily or permanently deny further services at any time based on parent failure to pay for services, student failure to comply with behavior expectations, or any other failure to comply with program expectations. 


ASI- Extra!

In Spring 2023, ISM will offer an ISM Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELOP) called ASI-Extra! This program aligns with the state expectations for ELOP funding as well as ISM’s Mission and Vision.  We are providing a session during Spring Break, with an additional session in the summer.


The program is designed to build an exciting world of understanding for students through internationally minded activities and STEM projects that supplement the foundational skills and attributes of ISM's IB curriculum. Students are encouraged to participate in collaborative experiences to build their abilities in various contexts while increasing their academic and social skills. 


The ASI-Extra! program is divided into two parts. There is a morning extra academic support session and an afternoon social enrichment session. 


Extra Academic Support

Extra academic support is for students in Kindergarten through grade 8.  Since the program is funded by a state provided grant, the extra academic support part is offered by invitation only and in phases. Space is limited to 10 Kinder/ 20 Grade 1-2/ 20 Grade 3-5/ 20 Grade 6-8 students at this time which means it is first come, first served.

  • Phase 1 is offered to all unduplicated students as part of the State mandated requirement (Foster youth, English language learners, and income eligible students). 

  • Phase 2 is offered to siblings of Phase 1 students and students in special education. 

  • Phase 3 invitations, based on staff recommendations and assessment data, are offered to all other students until spaces are filled.  

Following this model eliminates access and equity barriers to the extra academic support part of the program per the requirements of the state grant.  Students in Phases 1 and 2 do not pay a fee for the extra academic support part of the program. Students in Phase 3 pay for the extra academic support part of the program as noted in the fee chart below. 


The grant requires a comprehensive program, including Academic Support, Enrichment Activities, and Nutrition opportunities, and to ensure that spots are filled by students that are benefiting from what is offered. Students are expected to attend everyday during the break and stay until the end of the part(s) of the program to which they enrolled. 


Once all spots have been filled by invited and referred students, a wait list by grade level will be initiated. 


ASI Social Enrichment

ASI Social Enrichment is for students in Kindergarten through grade 8. This part of the program is a fee-based program with reduced rates available for income eligible students as noted in the fee chart below.  Students are enrolled pending space availability. A waitlist will be generated and families notified once space becomes available.
