Top Academic Enrichment Programs in Dallas




Perot Museum of Nature and Science

At the Perot Museum, programs are designed for guests of all ages, from toddlers and school children to teens and adults — because learning comes in all shapes and sizes. Featured programs include "Discovery Days", "Social Science", and "National Geographic Live!" among several others to inspire minds through nature and science.




Every Child Ready to Read

Every Child Ready to Read is a national program through the Public Library Association and the Association of Library Services to Children.

The Dallas program is a city-wide early literacy program aimed to encourage parents to partake in book sharing with their children, spread awareness of the importance of early literacy skills, and be a convenient resource to the community.




Park Cities 

Park Cities Speech, Language & Learning Center is a private pediatric and adolescent clinic committed to improving the lives of individuals with communication deficits and language based learning challenges. Their experienced Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists share a passion for maximizing communication potential in all children while specializing in a specific area of communication.



Kumon

Kumon learning centers for children specializes in nationwide after school math and reading programs for preschool students through 12th grade. You’ll find that Kumon is different from passive learning programs. Instead of taking notes, memorizing facts, and being fed information from teachers or a tutor, your child actively develops critical, self-learning skills. Kumon has several locations in the Dallas area.




Sylvan Learning Center

Sylvan tutors use a personal approach and interactive technology to help kids learn math, reading, writing and more—turning B's into A's and frustration into confidence! Several locations are available throughout the Dallas area for your convenience.

In-Home Tutors offers screened tutors in all subjects for all ages in your home throughout the Dallas metroplex.

Specialties include "homework coach" for ADHD students and SAT/ACT prep. Price Range: $45-$50/hour.





Big Thought

Curiosity, collaboration, problem-solving, and resilience. In the 21st century, kids need these skills more than ever, and Big Thought can develop them. Their approach to innovative learning combines core academics with community resources to help develop the capacities our young people need to thrive. Their mission is to make imagination a part of everyday learning.



Dallas Holocaust Museum

The Dallas Holocaust Museum is dedicated to preserving the memory of the Holocaust, and to teaching the moral and ethical response to prejudice, hatred and indifference for the benefit of all humanity. Under the leadership of the Education Staff, the Junior Board member program will develop activities that contribute to the Museum's networking and community building efforts, thereby developing their leadership and networking skills.




Dallas Heritage Village

DHV provides a variety of programs that let children experience the past in a whole new way. Some programs, such as History Quest, are only offered seasonally. Others, such as Barnyard Buddies, provide opportunities for discovery all year long. Boy/Girl Scout, and Home School programs are offered too, as well as the Junior Historians program for history enthusiasts aged 11-18.




Mad Science

Mad Science After-School STEM Learning Labs are hands-on and inquiry-based, so kids are fully engaged.

These programs meet national and Texas state TEKS science curriculum standards. Sessions are led by trained, qualified and dynamic instructors, with limited class sizes of 20.
