About Enrichment Classes

Red River Enrichment Classes is a cooperative teaching and learning experience formed in January of 2000 for local home school families. We meet in Gainesville, Texas.

Dinosaurs for PreK
There are two semesters each school year, and each semester is eleven weeks long. The Fall semester begins in September and the Spring semester begins in January. Parents teach a variety of classes on Fridays to small groups of home schooled children. The types of classes vary from academic courses to fun extra-curricular activities to athletic classes! Each semester ends with the Evening of Enrichment, a program showcasing the students' hard work.

Flags performance
Children of all ages are welcome to attend. There is a mother-attended nursery and a preschool program for ages 3-5. School aged children are divided as follows: K-1, 2-3, 4-6, 7-8, 9-12.
Nursery activities
Classes are taught from a Christian perspective (no New Age ideas, evolution, humanism, etc.) but in deference to others’ religious beliefs, denominational doctrine is not taught.
There is a $40.00 family registration fee, plus some classes charge an additional fee for class supplies. A full list of classes with their descriptions and fees will be mailed to those on the waiting list. Information packets for the upcoming semester (including classes available, prices, registration day, orientation, class dates, etc.) will be available by request.

The key to success at EC is cooperation. At least one parent from each family is expected to be involved and on the premises while their children are in classes. Enrichment Classes are a great way to meet and spend time with other home school families, and the classes are fun, too. We average 60 families each semester.
