After School Programs 

As community partners with Alvin ISD, we conduct after-school programs at select campuses. Parents have peace of mind knowing their student is in a SAFE familiar environment. Students enrolled in our program can easily transition to the next best thing when school dismisses.​ We mentor students on six amazing platforms designed to inspire a healthy mindset and support child development. 

Our programs work in tandem with the district calendar.

Students can still participate in school-related clubs, attend tutorials, and simply report to Gathering Kids (GK) when they are done. 

Your student's safety, success, and emotional well-being is our top priority. 

We care and are thrilled to invite parents to see exactly what we do to keep students productive and inspired through our the year! GK showcases will be streamed online to prevent large assemblies for the upcoming school year due to COVID-19. 

 
GK was named BEST After School Program of Pearland for SEVEN consecutive years and is currently recognized by Alvin ISD as a valuable partner. Our 5-star rating with parent testimonies confirms that our GK programs are making a difference in the community. 
All GK Afterschool programs at an AlvinISD facility are $75 per week, with a one-time registration fee of $75.​
We believe that EVERY child should be exposed to our programs.
For that reason, We sponsor student program fees up to 100% every school year for families that need financial support. 
We also offer a sliding fee schedule for low-income families.
