Boys and Girls Club
I live in Indiana and, of course, carry in schools is prohibited. My question is that since classes of sorts are held at places like the YMCA or the Boys and Girls Club, are they considered schools from a legal sense? Or is school only an actual public or private K-12 type place?

I believe they have to be accredited education sites, but the best place to ask this question is to ask it of your state's Attorney General's office, or a local attorney. You could probably get the answer from your local sheriff's office, as well.

Hope this helps.
Indiana Code 35-47-9
I believe I read in the legal notes, that it is prohibited to carry on school grounds, as well as licensed daycares. I cannot remember the exact code that I read that on, but I hope that helps a little as well.

Check the law FOR YOUR STATE, and consult a lawyer if you're in the least unsure.
Handgunlaw.us is a marvelous resource: from that site, it appears that you're prohibited from carrying at the places you mentioned (see the fourth line up from the bottom):

what type of classes are we talking about here
If it's underwater basket weaving, pottery making or bird house building 101 I would not think that would matter. If it's summer school or GED classes by a school district then that might make it a school building.
