The Best After School Classes in the Country

Inspiring (and Fun!) After School Classes in Central Arkansas

The Innovation Hub’s after school classes are packed with opportunities for your child to stretch their imagination, explore through hands-on activities under the guidance of experienced staff, and create amazing experiences that will inspire innovation and creativity now and for a lifetime to come.

Your child does not need a membership to the Hub in order to attend an after school class. In the past, the after school warrior membership was associated with the after school program. This year the classes are stand alone and a membership is not associated with the after school classes. Tuesday and Thursday classes are from 4:00 to 6:00 (for 10-13 and 14-16 year olds) and Wednesday classes are from 4:00 to 5:30 (for 15-18 year olds).

Scholarships for after school classes are available. Click here to fill out an application.
