After-school activities

CISB offers a diverse After School Activities (ASA) program that provides our students from Pre-Kindergarten 3 to Grade 12 with opportunities to support their learning and to cultivate and enrich existing social, intellectual and motor skills.

Our ASA program is offered daily from 3:40 to 4:40 Monday to Thursday and 2:40 to 3:40 on Friday with a late bus service provided for our bus students. We offer two types of ASAs: Our Non-Paid ASA and our Paid ASA.

Paid Activities

Only the Best 


Our Canadian Academic Academy Program (CAAP) offers students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 an opportunity to enrich their classroom learning with programs focused on language development, mathematical skill development and IB DP, IELTS and TOEFL preparation. These two hours a week programs start at the beginning of each term. Find out more by visiting our ASA department or email us.


Whether it is through Physical Education class, or through competition within any of the sports of our Athletics Programs, we hope to provide our students with the opportunities and lessons that cannot be provided within a classroom setting. In this way, we hope to educate the whole child and provide an opportunity for our students to learn both within the classroom and outside of it.
