Our After-School Programs reinforce the lessons learned in your child’s classroom, complementing our mission as a classical, liberal arts institution.
Athenaeum After-School Program
The Athenaeum (ath-uh-nay-uhm) was originally a school in Rome, founded by Emperor Hadrian in 133 A.D. for the promotion of literary and scientific studies.
Similarly, Great Hearts Athenaeum After-School Program is focused on the liberal arts and promotes learning by providing students dedicated homework time in addition to a diverse array of culturally enriching, academically oriented activities beyond the classroom. But it’s not all academics! Athenaeum scholars also enjoy time for recreation, games, socializing and just plain fun. Athenaeum runs daily from the dismissal bell (even on early release days) until 6:00 p.m. Flexible and affordable options are available to fit any family’s after-school needs.
Homework Club is a place for your student to complete homework, receive peer tutoring and socialize with friends in a structured, supervised environment. The program begins immediately after school and runs until 6:00 p.m. each school day, including early release days. Please note: Homework Club is not available at all Texas Academies, please check your campus for availability.

*The amount paid upon registration will be applied to the first month of in-person Athenaeum or Homework Club attendance.
*If the first-month fee amount needs to be adjusted for any reason, the Billing Specialist will communicate these adjustments directly with account holder.
*All automatic billing will be suspended until in-person instruction resumes. Automatic billing will resume for the second month of attendance and beyond.
If you enroll your child in Distance Learning, or will not be returning for in-person instruction for the duration of the 2020-21 school year, or have any questions regarding your account, please contact the Billing Specialist at Programs@GreatHeartsTX.org to make any necessary adjustments to your account.
