Yes, Your Young Sims Can Go and Enjoy After School Activities!

The release of The Sims 4: High School Years introduced after school activities in the game. With this pack, it is now possible for sims to join teams and clubs that specialize in Chess, Cheerleading, Drama, Football, and Computer activities. However, doing after school activities is still achievable even though you do not yet have TS4: High School Years in your game!

In the past, Kawaiistacie introduced the first after school activities mod for our student sims. However, as of this writing, the said mod has long been defunct. But fret not! With these updated mods from Adeepindigo and KiaraSims4 that we gathered for you, you can still let young sims explore the best of their lives with a multitude of fun things they can do after school.

After School Activities from Adeepindigo

The first mod that we have is the Dynamic Teen Life Mod from Adeepindigo, which you can access through Adeepindigo’s Patreon post here. The Dynamic Teen Life Mod has lots of interesting features, but for this article, we’ll only focus on the after school activities that this mod offers. Take note that these after school activities are only available for teenage sims!

How to Join Adeepindigo’s After-School Activities

Sims 4 After School Activities!

To be able to join the activities of Adeepindigo, click on your sim’s phone and choose the “After School Activities” on the options. Meanwhile, for the Teen Activities, go and click on a computer to access these.

1. Team and Club Tryouts

Your teen sims can choose to participate in clubs or team tryouts for their after-school activities. Plenty of choices are available, such as the STEM Club, the Performing Arts Club, the Football Club, the Drama Club, and others.

2. Activities for Team and Club Tryouts

For these Teams and Clubs, your sim would either have to accomplish a specific activity to be able to become part of the said group. They would either have to perform a specific tryout or audition. For example, to join the STEM club, they’d have to either create a website using the computer, or design their own robot.

In the case of after-school sports such as Football or Swimming, student sims could join a day of tryouts to test their abilities and prove that they could be fit for these teams. However, if they are not physically fit, they could fail these tryouts. Young sims will go home with a disappointed mood in the chance that they do.

3. Student Council and Others

Apart from proving their capabilities to join clubs and teams, young sims can also join the Student Council! They could declare their intention to run for a seat in the said council and secure votes from their fellow students. The results of the Elections can then be seen under the Business option in their phones.

4. Teen Activities

More after-school activities can be enjoyed by teen sims through Adepeendigo’s Dynamic Teen Life Mod. Apart from the ones available through the phone, your sim can also use the computer to access the “Teen Activities” option. Here, they’d marvel through the list of interesting activities they could accomplish with their teen peers.

Some of the teen activities include attending college fairs, hanging out at the mall, going on a group date, experimenting with friends, hooking up, being a part of the school newspaper, and many others. You can choose up to 6 teen sims to participate in these after-school activities. You wouldn’t be able to see them as they do these fun things, but they’d go home with a certain moodlet that describes their experiences.

After-School Activities from KiaraSims4

We also loved the after-schol activities offered through the School Activities Mod by KiaraSims4. You can access the said mod here. With so many activities to choose from in this Mod, your little sim would surely find one that they’d enjoy!

How to Join KiaraSims4′ After-School Activities

To be able to join the activities of KiaraSims4, click on your sim’s phone and choose the “Join After School Activity” on the options available. KiaraSims4’s after-school activities function much like an adult sim’s regular career. Your kid and teen sims get to attend an activity for a specific schedule after their classes at school ends. They can then get to climb the ladder and be promoted to new positions as long as they do their daily tasks well. There is also a possibility for them to have more than one after-school activity.

JROTC stands for “Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps” and is popular in U.S. schools for priming students who plan to join the military after graduation.

7. Karate

If your kid sims would like to learn the values of discipline and self-strength, let them be a part of the Karate after-school activity! In the Karate Club, your sim gets to start as a “Karate Kid”, and their trainings would commence every Tuesday and Thursday from 4:00 to 6:00 PM.

10. Martial Arts

Much like the Karate, the Martial Arts after-school activity also teaches kids and teens self-defense techniques and other physical skills.

How to Install The After-School Activities Mods

Head over to this page to download the after-school activities from KiaraSims4. You can select just the ones you like. Meanwhile, go and visit this Patreon post of Adeepindigo to access the after-school activities that come with the Dynamic Teen Life mod. It is possible to have both these mods running in your game at the same time but to prevent errors and compatibility issues, we recommend that you install only one of these two at a time.

If you get zipped files in your download, simply unzip these to obtain .package files. Then, collect all .package files and drop these into your Mods folder. You can access the said folder through this path: Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 > Mods. Take note not to place .package files too deep inside folders so that the game can easily locate and read the files. Then, make sure that the use of mods and custom content is enabled in your game settings.

Wrapping It Up

With so many choices to choose from, your young sims will surely enjoy this array of awesome after-school activities from KiaraSims4 and Adeepindigo that we have rounded up for you! Without further ado, go and download these after-school mods to make the lives of your kids and teen sims all the more exciting in the game. Trust us, they’ll definitely be delighted! Have fun playing, simmers!

    • Yuna, I apologize for the confusion. The Drama Club activity comes with The Sims 4 Get Famous. This along with the Scout activity are vanilla items and they were erroneously added to the list. I will update this article in the next week to properly reflect that information, sorry again for the confusion.
