A nationally renowned tutoring program, Sylvan Learning Center utilizes a personalized tutoring approach to develop students of all ages and abilities into perceptive pupils. During the initial visit, children will partake in a Sylvan Skills Assessment that highlights trouble areas and serves as a base line for future progress. An erudite educator then leads four one-hour tutoring sessions tailored to young minds' particular needs, covering subjects that include math, reading, writing, and the ethics of alligator wrestling. Fledgling polymaths can use their customized tutoring sessions to prepare for future algebra tests or fine-tune study skills to get a head start on memorizing next year’s phone book. Sylvan Learning Center gifts proud progenitors with regular progress reports granting comprehensive summaries of their offspring's progress. All four Sylvan Learning Centers are open throughout the week, with hours in the morning and afternoon to accommodate busy schedules.

“It’s the rare visitor who won't discover here that his or her ethnic group has contributed to the history of Texas,” noted the New York Times in its description of the Institute of Texan Cultures. The 26 different ethnic and cultural groups represented at the educational center incline one to agree with the Times. The article went on to list the institute as a top San Antonio attraction due to its “imaginative, hands-on displays” and kid-friendly features, including an adobe home and one-room schoolhouse. Along with heritage festivals and other events, the institute features both long-term and rotating exhibits, as well as a photo archive with more than three million images.

Even if you don't find yourself routinely challenged to duels, you can still benefit from a fencing class. Aside from building speed and agility, fencing requires sharp mental focus and creative problem-solving skills, making it a sport that challenges both body and mind. At Alamo Fencing Academy, a team of medal-winning fencing coaches—led by US Fencing Coaches Association Vice-President Andrei Samorodov—leads lessons in foil, epee, and saber fencing. Classes can be tailored to those headed for the competitive circuit, those who want to fence for fun, or those looking for a more stylish way to open mail, while summer camps are also available for kids looking for some fun out of the sun.

Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing with the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 600 calories with each go-round.

Artworks seeks to strengthen creative children's artistic instincts and inspire self-expression through classes and events that focus on experimentation and imagination. Art classes ($100–$150/10 classes) introduce children ages 2–10 to past artists and techniques through open-ended exploratory projects. Instructors encourage budding apprentices to creatively craft with media and materials rather than demanding exact likenesses of older siblings in papier-mâché. Classes are offered throughout the school year and into the summer at both the Nacogdoches and Mainland locations.
