St. Stephen’s Episcopal School Houston offers a unique after-school Fine Arts Academy. Through our program students learn problem-solving, abstract thinking and creative expression. Our instructors are all professionals that tailor instruction to students' level of experience.

Fall Semester: 

September 5 - December 15, 2017 (extended)

Spring Semester:

January 16 - May 11, 2018


A registration fee of $30 is due annually each August for all classes whether private or group instruction. This one-time annual registration covers ALL classes. Students not enrolled in fall offerings will pay a $15 spring registration fee. Each student will receive a Fine Arts Academy t-shirt as part of registration.

Enrichment tuition

Private instruction and group classes will be billed and paid in full per semester. Payments can be made by credit card, check or cash with receipt. There are no refunds. Fridays are open days for make-up classes for private instruction, to be arranged between the instructor and parent within two weeks of a missed class. In the event a missed private instruction is not made up within two weeks, the class will be forfeited. There is no make-up class for group instruction. Classes are limited to a first-come, first-serve basis. We reserve the right to cancel any class if minimum numbers are not met. In this case, a full refund will be issued. 


If students are enrolled in after-school care or the da Vinci Lab of Creative Arts and Sciences, they will be picked up, signed out and returned after their lesson. Students not enrolled in aftercare may not wait on campus until their lesson. They must be picked up then returned to campus at their lesson time. All students must be picked up on time or they will be sent to aftercare and charged for a “drop in” rate of $30 per child per day. After 5:30 p.m. the fee is $1 per minute. Parents are responsible for any instrument, equipment or teaching book materials needed for lessons.

One Year Enrollment

If you are signed up for one year enrollment, you will be charged for the spring semester in January, if not already paid in full. Please contact the business office for any questions.


SSESH reserves the right to cancel any class that does not meet the necessary enrollment.
