We are now accepting students into the program and will continue to operate on a "first-come, first-served" basis. You can access our application online here or pick up a copy from our receptionist. If your student is in athletics or will be attending tutoring regularly, we do not recommend our AfterSchool Academy because we want to ensure consistent attendance.
Why did the AfterSchool Academy Program start late this year? The program was postponed because we were in the process of hiring a manager for the program and we decided that it would be better to get them in at the beginning rather than have them come in after we've already started. We had hoped the position would be filled sooner, but in discussing logistics with our principal and district staff we felt it was our best option at that time.
In 2019-2020, we will be in our sixth school year of after school programming! We've done things like:
- Kayaking, biking, and rock wall climbing with Baylor Outdoors
- Cooking and making good use of our school garden to learn about nutrition
- Leadership groups such as Delta Academy through Delta Sigma Theta
- Athletic groups including tennis (thanks to the Waco Tennis Association!) and Ultimate Frisbee

Hi, I'm Travis Cheatham, ISMS' Family Support Specialist. Currently, I'm also the Interim Director of the Afterschool Program, but we hope to have someone in the role soon. In the meantime, I'm happy to help answer questions.
From 2016-2018, I was the Service Learning Manager at ISMS, but now continue to help promote these programs and assist with oversight.
