Virtual ABC Clubs

In response to COVID, Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS) students in grades 7-12 now have the opportunity to attend a variety of free and fun afterschool activities via the Virtual ABC Clubs, developed by Activities Beyond the Classroom in partnership with CPS.

Virtual ABC Clubs

Normally in person, ABC’s free afterschool ABC Clubs are designed to ensure that CPS children have equitable access to extracurricular activities such as chess, arts, athletics, yoga, martial arts, dance, and much more. Because of the pandemic and the uncertainty of children attending in-person school, ABC was forced to put ABC Clubs on hold during the first semester. Now, as the second semester gets underway, we are thrilled to announce that ABC Clubs are back – this time with virtual offerings.

Club activities are after school hours, with a variety of start times to accommodate different school schedules. Details include:

  • Clubs meet once per week Mondays through Thursday via Google Meet for one hour February 9 – May 20
  • Session start times are 2:30, 3:30, and 4:30pm
  • All supplies are provided
  • Clubs are districtwide (not school specific) and are designed for students in grades 7-12
  • Students can register for up to one Club per day, with a maximum of 12 students per Club
  • Registration opened January 25
  • Club activities are FREE for students
  • If an activity fills up, ABC will maintain a waitlist. Since spots are limited, students are expected to attend activities regularly; if a student misses three sessions, they will be dropped from the activity and their spot will be offered to another student.
