Our OST programs offer academic and recreational programs for children between the ages of *5-12 years. Out of School Time  Programs are operated in conjunction with DISD calendar.

Program Benefits


By participating in our OST program, your child will be exposed to a wide variety of activities that will help broaden their interest and challenge them to learn and master new skills; thus increasing self-esteem. In addition, children enrolled in an afterschool program often have better social skills and improved grades as well as live a healthier more active lifestyle.
