Elective programs are offered at select locations only. They are typically one hour per week, 10-12 week classes in the arts, music, foreign languages, sports, science, STEM, etc. offered as an additional benefit to students. Classes vary by school and include courses taught by specialized enrichment providers.
As a partner to our schools, Right At School manages these enrichment classes to relieve schools of administrative tasks and to create a streamlined process for parents. Typically, we work with schools and parent groups to identify preferred providers. While Right At School vets partners and ensures background checks are clear for Electives teachers, the curriculum, teaching strategies, and staff are separate from Right At School.
Now that you know, don’t wait – immerse your child in a place to EXPLORE, a place to be CURIOUS, and a place to DISCOVER their PASSIONS!

Electives Partners of the Month!
Chess Scholars got their start in 2001 in the Chicagoland area after noticing there were few places to play chess and even fewer places for young kids to learn how to play chess. They quickly began offering classes in the community. Since then, they have continued branching into other types of programming – like coding, art, and drama– and have expanded into other states as well!
Electives Partners of the Month!
USA Jump Stars was founded by veteran jumper Melinda Everett in 2007 as an effort to promote physical education to children of all ages to promote jump rope as a means for creating a healthy body and mind. Their focus is fighting childhood obesity and heart disease while developing personal values, team spirit, and sportsmanship through competition, live performance, and fun!
Through the partnership with RAS, USA Jump Stars has been able to get back into some of the schools that they’ve taught at prior to the pandemic to continue sharing the love of jump rope. Their programs are offered at numerous elementary schools, community centers, recreational facilities, and now online!

Frequently Asked Questions About Electives
Electives are after school enrichment courses taught by local vendors you know and love! Right At School manages registration, billing, and the safety/supervision of children who attend Electives. Courses are typically one hour per week for 10–12 week sessions in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Course offerings vary by school and cover a wide range of exciting subjects: art, music, foreign languages, sports, coding, STEM, and more!
Any student can attend a RAS Electives class offered at their school! You do not have to be registered for Right At School’s After School program. Electives start soon after the last school bell rings, and a Right At School staff member will be present to take attendance and ensure your child arrives safely.
Complete the form at the top of this page to view your school’s Electives offerings. When you find a class you want to sign up for, hit the REGISTER button. You’ll be prompted to create a Right At School account (or log in if you already have one), and then you’ll be guided through our step-by-step registration process. You can also contact Customer Service at 855-287-2466 if you prefer to register over the phone.
Our Electives partners design classes to serve the developmental needs of a specific age range so that all students can have the best experience. Your child must be in the required grade level(s) to participate.
Payment is due in full at the time of registration. If a class is canceled, you will be issued a full refund.
Like all Right At School programs, Electives are held on-site at your child’s school. Depending on the type of class, we may use the gym, multi-purpose rooms, classrooms, or even the playground.
RAS Electives are taught by specialized enrichment vendors with an established reputation in your community! Right At School thoroughly vets every vendor, including background checks for all instructors.
We allow one risk-free trial class so that your child can determine if the class is a good fit. We think this is fair for both families and our Electives partners. A full refund will be provided if you contact Customer Service and cancel prior to the second scheduled class.
All Elective classes have minimum and maximum enrollment numbers. Once a class reaches its maximum enrollment, the class will be closed to further registration. Families may register for the waitlist on the parent portal and will be notified if a space opens up.
If a class does not meet its minimum enrollment, it will be canceled during the week before the first Electives class. Right At School will remove the child’s registration, and parents will be notified of the cancellation. Payment will be refunded within 7-10 business days.
No refunds will be given for programs that are cancelled due to weather, facility issues, school closures, school-dictated unavailability of space, COVID-related closures or any other issue beyond Right At School’s direct control.
