Learn Something New
Explore Horizons
Research shows that nearly two-thirds of children fall behind in their studies over the summer break. Want your child to stay ahead of this summer slide? Explore Horizons offer a range of engaging, fun educational activities that bolster math, reading, writing, and STAAR prep skills over the summer and into the new school year. Not only can families enjoy a free in-person assessment for their child anytime they choose, but you can also join our free Back to School Workshop on August 15th to get learners back in the zone with strong learning habits for the new year.  explore-horizons.com 


Get On With The Show

NTPA’S  2-Week Productions cram all the fun of a major production into two crazy weeks! All students who sign up will be cast. Auditions take place on the first day of rehearsal.
