The Bishop's Camp
For seven weeks each summer, the Bishop's Camp provides a safe Christian learning environment for over one hundred children in our inner-city neighborhood. Our goal is to help these children maintain their reading skills over the summer break by providing daily one-to-one reading time with adult or teen volunteers. The camp also provides classes in math, music, art, and physical education in the morning and play time in the afternoon. Through participation in the DISD summer food program, a free lunch and snack are also provided.
Aberg Center for Literacy
The mission of the Aberg Center is to provide free quality instruction on literacy levels 5 through 8 to adults in the East Dallas area, accompanied by free child care, so that the students may continue progress toward employment and educational goals, including preparing for the GED test.
The Mi Escuelita Preschool is pleased to be located on the campus of St. Matthew’s Cathedral. For over 30 years, Mi Escuelita Preschool, Inc. has proudly operated under the principle that all children deserve and require access to a quality education in addition to preventative health, dental, vision, nutritional, speech, and behavioral care.
Mi Escuelita has continuously worked with disadvantaged children of all languages and cultures, exposing them to English language, pre-reading, literacy, math, science, and social skills at an early age. With a low teacher-pupil ratio of 1:9, Mi Escuelita teachers are able to work closely with every child.
