Summer School

Elementary students learn to fence

Montessori principles continue to guide our work in prepared environments with a distinctive flavor of summer.

At the Bissonnet Campus, students may enjoy fun activities such as splash days, outdoor play, gardening, arts and crafts, cooking, and transition classes. In July, they proudly participate in our grand Independence Day parade. At the Museum District Campus, Middle School and High School students can explore technology, math, essay writing, classical languages, and sports.

Young Children's Community (YCC)

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

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

Primary

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 also offer one Primary Spanish immersion class. Both Primary classes are 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 following school year, is offered for all eight weeks of summer. It is set up in a Lower Elementary classroom and led by our Elementary faculty. This class provides an opportunity to have fun, strengthen skills, orient students to the new environment, establish friendships, 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.

Elementary

Elementary students in grades 2 through 6 will enjoy a wide variety of entertaining and instructional summer camp activities that may include art, cooking, baking, sewing, hula hoop fitness, coding, fencing, chess, and yoga. Most classes are led by Post Oak teachers. Plan ahead to ensure a space for your child. A schedule of weekly activities at the Elementary level is listed in the Summer Program booklet.

Middle School

Students have the opportunity to hone their technology skills, immerse themselves in classical language study, or participate in volleyball and other ball sports.

High School

High School students can stay busy over the summer with classes ranging from boot camps in math and essay writing to digital media literacy and volleyball/sports.

Times & Tuition

Tuition for all summer school sessions are billed 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.
