Kinder Readiness will be hosted at the Monte Vista Campus. Scholars registering for Summer Camp will have the option to register for programs hosted at either the Forest Heights or Northern Oaks campuses.
Grades: For Incoming Kinder (and Wait-Listed Kinder) Students Only
Students must be at least 4 years old and fully potty-trained.

The Kindergarten Readiness summer program is designed to help students transition to the classroom community with ease. Students will practice fundamental skills, following directions, and learn teacher expectations. They will learn the joy that comes from learning to demonstrate self-control, build confidence through accomplishing new tasks, and start making new friends. Our teachers will model everything they will need to know about what it means to be a Great Hearts Monte Vista Scholar! Students will wear the Great Hearts Monte Vista school uniform as outlined in the family handbook and bring a snack.
With a unique curriculum each week, you can register for one or both weeks of Kinder Readiness to help your kindergarten scholar prepare for the exciting year ahead!
Program Hours: 8:15 am- 12:15 pm (Drop-Off begins at 7:45 am)

Kinder Readiness will be hosted at Monte Vista.
Each week of our full-day camp will feature a unique theme for current grades K-4th with exciting activities based on the wide range of interests– science, math, art, literature, athletic skills, etc. Whether you register for one or both weeks, it is bound to be an experience to remember!
Summer Camp will NOT be hosted at Monte Vista. Students have the option to register to attend Summer Camp at two other San Antonio campuses:
Week 1 (June 6-10): Adventures in Space
Be ready to blast off for a week full of adventure! Packed with STEM activities, this hands-on camp will give campers the opportunity to experiment with and test ideas related to constellations, the solar system, gravity, rockets, and more.
Week 2 (June 13-17): Farm to Table
In our journey from “Farm to Table,” campers will learn what it means to grow, harvest, raise, and preserve food. Campers will rediscover lost skills of farming and use science to see nature at work in our food. Campers will bring home all the natural goods they crafted at the ‘farm’ to share!
