Wholesome Generation is open from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday and we operate year-round, following AISD for closures, with exceptions during weather situations.

Higher Learning is facilitated on weekends only for youth between 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, and Community Events are held quarterly. Volunteer Events are held monthly for parents.

We offer services for youth ages 18 months, through 8 years old, for our year-round school, and we are adding one Grade with each new school-year. Starting with the ’20 school-year, Wholesome Generation will apply for CHARTER SCHOOL status for the Kindergarten – Grade 2 Classes (our pre-K classes with stay independent and continue without interruption).

Our camps and after-school program reaches youth until the age of 12, and our community classes are suited for anyone. We offer volunteer and service opportunities for Senior Citizens and select Internships for Students.

Our umbrella also allows Research Students and Professors to utilize our Classrooms as ‘interactive lab’ for their studies, and with help from Educators at UT Austin, ACC and Texas State University, we are launching a Educator Institute in 2019.

Wholesome Generation supports an anti-bias, humanistic education. We welcome families from all lifestyles: social, ethnic, religious, political, cultural, sexual, racial, economic, geographic, and philosophical. We actively resist and challenge bias and support social justice for the greater good. We are a state licensed facility through the Texas Department of Family and Protected Services.

Annual Registration Fee

A $75.00 per child non-refundable fee is due at registration and then annually. If your child(ren) are not attending our summer program, your registration fee is due in June to hold your September space.

Community Fee

A community fee of $700 ($650 for returning children and pro-rated for partial week attending students) will be assessed the first month your child attends, and then each August the child continues in the program. This covers the use of our organic essential oils daily, repair of culinary teaching equipment, and part of the cost for the richness of materials used by all of the children in the arts + culinary/gardening programs. This fee is non-refundable and due annually. For families enrolling to hold a space for the upcoming semester or school-year, this fee will hold the students space and will not be refunded if the family is moving or leaving unexpectedly.

Multiple Child Discounts

A 5% reduction in tuition for the second child and any additional children enrolled concurrently is available.

A huge perk for parents is our SUMMER CAMP SANA experience – Children enrolled into our 12-month (full-week) programs, will automatically be able to participate in our summer camp Sana programs at the same tuition schedule – this is a huge perk for parents who can’t take off during the summer and love the consistency for their child. At Wholesome Generation, your child stays with their peers and can enjoy ALL of our CAMP SESSIONS (all foods included).
