After School Activities

The After-School Activities program (ASA) at DAIS shows how learning extends beyond the traditional school day. Each school division offers a variety of activities designed to give students the opportunity to learn new skills, be active, express their creativity, engage in community service initiatives, develop leadership skills and have fun.

ASA runs every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:55-4:45 pm. For those living off campus, transportation is provided for a fee. For more information on busing, please click here.
