FAIS' Extracurricular Department provides a safe and enjoyable environment for students in need of childcare outside of school hours.
Before school care is provided at no charge from 7:30 AM until the beginning of the school day. Students are organized in rooms by age groups. Fifteen minutes before the school day begins, the assistant teachers for preschool through kindergarten escort these students to their respective classrooms.

The FAIS After School Creative Activities (FASCA) program is designed to provide an enriching and positive after-school experience for every child. Students are divided into age-appropriate groups in individual classrooms. Students in grades two through eight work on homework for at least half an hour and then are offered activities such as games, outdoor play if weather permits, crafts, cooking, or library time. FASCA is available at a reasonable rate until 6 PM.
During In Service days and Parent-Teacher Conferences, the Extracurricular Department provides childcare that includes special workshops and field trips. FAIS hours are 7:30 AM - 6 PM. Most recently, FAIS+ participants enjoyed a bike ride on the Banks-Vernonia Trail:
