We are pleased to provide the Thorp Institute After School Program for our students.

This year we will offer four sessions, one for each quarter, allowing for a greater variety of programs. All after school classes run from 2:45 – 3:45 unless otherwise noted. Upon dismissal, students should report to the auditorium, where they will be picked up for Institute.

This year we did not receive our after-school funding grant and will therefore only have clubs with high student interest and a minimum number of students.Excellent attendance is required (students missing 3 or more may be removed from the program). Unfortunately, NO bus service will be provided. Students may bring a snack from home – we do not provide snacks for them. Please keep in mind we are a PEANUT FREE school.

PLEASE NOTE: Space is limited, notifications will be sent via email if your child has been accepted into the program. This application does NOT guarantee your child is automatically accepted into the program. Students must be picked up promptly at dismissal 3:45 pm, any student remaining who has not been picked up will be placed in the After Care Program and charged the drop in rate. Thank you for your cooperation. Any questions, please contact Mr. Vikhter at mdvikhter@cps.edu

  1. Hi, Good morning

    I would like to know when are the registrations for debate and theater begin and what is the cost for those programs?
    My daughter is in 7th grade.

    1. Hello,
      Debate registration has begun already, please click on the link above to sign your daughter up. Theater is coming soon, we are in contact with the new theater company and we will post that as soon as it becomes available. Keep in mind that while Debate is free, Theater may have a tuition fee as it is being offered by an outside vendor. Please check back regularly!

    1. Mrs. Samson, this is what the teachers offered so far for 1st Quarter. Please check back periodically as we hope to add more programs for younger students. As for Mad Science we are still waiting to see if that Vendor will be returning this year.
