St. Philip's College has many enrichment programs for students of all ages.


The Academy of Fine Arts is home for the San Antonio Youth Wind Ensembles. The ensembles were founded in January of 2010, with a single performing group. The program has grown into two fully performing ensembles, which most recently made their debut appearance at New York City’s famous Carnegie Hall in June of 2017. Academy students learn to perform high grade and quality music. As ambassadors for St. Philip’s College, our students engage fully with the greater San Antonio community.  Community outreach events include performing at several branches of the San Antonio Public Library for holiday and other celebrations.  In December of 2017, the San Antonio Youth Wind Ensemble chamber groups performed at the three San Antonio area “Grace Places.” The Grace Place provides adult daycare and respite care for those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.


We offer High School Equivalency preparation classes for students who need to achieve their certificate in order to accomplish life goals.  The preparation classes are delivered in a traditional Face to Face class format or in an online study guide format. The equivalency preparation covers development in content areas: Math, Science, Social Studies and Language Arts - to include Reading and Writing. This preparation provides content knowledge for those who take the GED (General Equivalency Diploma) the HiSet (High School Equivalency Test) or the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion).


KIDS’ CAMP is a summer program for students between the ages of 4 and 13. KIDS’ CAMP is a recreational/educational program which means we provide classes that keep students engaged in general subject content and recreational activities that include play in the Gym, Golf Lessons and Dance and other special event activities to include field trips.We are proud that we have the only operational MICROSOCIETY® in San Antonio. 

MICROSOCIETY, Inc. has been creating learning environments that are meaningful and relevant to children. Beyond project based learning or one day simulations, our real life business ventures and government agency activities are long-term, authentic, and interconnected. They inspire success. We help children find meaning and purpose in their education and prepare them to be discerning students as they proceed through higher education and ultimately into adulthood as productive, contributing citizens and skilled innovators in a global economy. Our students engage in running “St. Philip’s City” by electing their Mayor and securing individuals to operate ventures like our journalism, banking, the government center and our arts and crafts store. Students meet with professionals in the area of the ventures for guidance to connect students with real world challenges.


Artemisia’s Sewing Circle is a service-learning class, developed in partnership with “Little Dresses for Africa,” a non-profit agency that provides simple pillowcase dresses for young girls who have no other clothes.  Their mission states that we are not just sending dresses, but we are sending hope. This class has been used as a team building tool for St. Philip’s College leadership and for the students of the KIDS’ CAMP.
