Programs for Summer 2017

Summer at The Post Oak School is a time of wonder and exploration. Montessori principles continue to guide our work in prepared environments with a distinctive flavor of summer. Students enjoy fun activities such as splash days, outdoor adventures, gardening arts and crafts, cooking and transition classes, etc. On June 30, they will proudly participate in our grand Independence Day parade. We hope you will join us for fun in the summer at Post Oak!

Young Children's Community (YCC)

Our summer YCC class will take place in a familiar, caring environment led by a Montessori-trained teacher. The routine of the day will be comfortable, encouraging growth and independence, with activities that may include gardening, water play, and outdoor fun.

The full-day class will be offered for eight weeks. Current full-day Post Oak students have priority for the full-day class. Current half-day YCC students will be enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis as space becomes available.


Summertime in the Primary Community is a blast! Friday splash days, outdoor activities, crafts, games, music, and more are combined with the familiar work of the Primary environment. Along with one regular Primary class, we will also offer one Primary Spanish immersion class. Both Primary classes will be led by Montessori-trained teachers. Full-day children should enroll for full days in summer. Extended care during the summer session is only for children already enrolled in the extended-day program at the end of May.

Elementary Transition

This class for students transitioning from Primary to Lower Elementary in the fall of 2017, will be offered for all eight weeks of summer. It is set up in a Lower Elementary classroom and is taught by our Elementary faculty. This class provides an opportunity to strengthen skills, orient students to the new environment, and prepare them for entry into the Lower Elementary classroom in the fall. It is strongly recommended that transitioning students attend for at least three weeks. The day’s schedule is from 8:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Enrollment is limited.


Elementary students will enjoy a wide variety of entertaining and instructional summer camp activities that may include art, cooking, baking, sewing, hula hoop fitness, tennis, fencing, chess, and yoga. Most classes will be led by Post Oak teachers. Plan ahead to insure a space for your child.

Times & Tuition

Tuition for all summer school sessions will be billed monthly at the end of each month. A student who attends for one day will be considered to have attended for the entire week. No partial weeks will be billed unless there is a holiday or school is closed by the administration. Notice of cancellation must be received by Wednesday of the previous week, or you will be billed for the entire week.


Special note: The 9th week of summer school, July 31 to August 4, at the Bissonnet Campus has been cancelled due to upcoming extensive roof work and our concern for student safety. The last day of summer school will be July 28. We apologize for this change, and thank you for your understanding and flexibility as we prioritize the safety of the students. The Museum District Campus is not affected and will run all nine weeks.
