After School

We’re always learning

Make the most of your child’s (4th Grade-Transition) after-school hours when they discover new interests, build social skills and make new friends through fun, engaging activities. Keshet’s After School makes the most out of your child’s afternoons.

Keshet’s Winter After School takes place Jan. 9 – May 18, 2023. No classes will be held during the week of Mar. 27.

Register for Winter

After school welcomes students from any school

Choice of activities

Keshet After School offers something for everyone—music, sports, drama, fitness, art, yoga, games and more. Our low 1:3 staff to student ratio provides plenty of personalized support.

Convenient locations

We’re nearby! Programs take place in Northbrook and Skokie with one way transportation available from Keshet’s Day School or Keshet’s High School.

A break for you

While kids are having fun for two hours with Keshet, After School gives you time for working, relaxing, or running errands.

Volunteers needed

After school activities are more fun with more people! Volunteers (6th grade and older) are needed to participate alongside students and also assist instructors. Volunteers can choose the day of the week and location that works best for them, and need to be available for the entire semester. While there is no fee for volunteering, you must submit an application.
