The Santa Barbara Independent After-School Activities Guide

Check Out the Extensive Range of Things Your Kids Can Do After Class

Everybody sing, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year.” Summer has come to an end, and it’s time to get those moppets back in school: back to the books, social drama, sports practices, rehearsals, and homework. Not everyone can pick those shavers up right after school, so The Santa Barbara Independent has gathered some after-school options to fit the needs of your child and you. There are performing arts, surfing, sports, educational and tutoring opportunities, and so much more, maybe something new and untried. So sign them up, relax, and sing, “It’s the hap-happiest season of all!”
