Enrichment

Our Enrichment Program

CLASSES ARE OPEN TO ALL

Both our Enrichment program and after-care program welcomes all students in the Greater Clear Lake and Houston Bay Area regardless of whether they are enrolled at St. Thomas. This is why most of our Enrichment classes start at 4:00 pm; to allow students to transition from their regular school to St. Thomas.

All classes are currently offered on a nine-week rotation and can vary session to session. Most classes are organized by age group or level of mastery.

We invite you to register online using our form button below or to stop by our office to pick up a form in person.

For questions, please contact our office by phone at (281) 333-1340 or click here to request information.
