Summer Explorations 2023 starts its 30th year at Capitol School located in historic downtown Tuscaloosa. The program began on the campus of The University of Alabama where it was known as “Something Special” for 20 summers until 1993. It has now grown to 10 weeks of four sessions. Parents can select morning (8:00-12:00) and afternoon classes (1:00-5:00) to create a full day of classes from 8:00 to 5:00 with morning arrival starting at 7:30 a.m. and the teacher staying until 5:30 p.m. for parent pick-up. When parents enroll for both morning and afternoon sessions and send a lunch—we provide supervision at no charge from noon until 1:00 daily.  Parents can fit classes at Capitol School around morning or afternoon plans such as swimming lessons or Bible School.

      Capitol School’s philosophy of providing learning opportunities for your child’s Multiple Intelligences is evident in the many classes offered this summer. Capitol School’s emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics continues across the summer. You’ll find many STEM related classes along with reading, art, Spanish, and music.

     We haven’t forgotten the babies!  We offer DHR certified classes for young children ages 1 - 36 months.  Children can enroll by the month for June, July and August as long as space is available.  Limit of 5 children per class for infants and crawlers. All teachers are CPR trained with background checks. DHR requires that all children ages 2.5 - 5 years be “potty-trained” as no diaper changing facilities are allowed in the Preschool.
