• Purpose
    The Dripping Springs Independent School District Community Services Department offers life-long learning opportunities and services to families and the community. These opportunities reach beyond the traditional school day for the purpose of providing academic, recreation, health, social service and work preparation programs for people of all ages. Strength is built through collaboration and DSISD Community Services encourages community members to share ideas and resources with us to help us better meet the needs of the Dripping Springs community. Contact us at 512.858.3021 with ideas or questions.

    Community Services
    Life-long learning starts at a very young age, which would encapsulate our preschool classes, for those as young as the age of three. There are enrichment classes for school-age students through the after-school Kids College, and a variety of summer camps. Classes, clinics, and camps are available year round for Middle and High School students. Collaboration between individuals, groups, businesses and the District provides opportunities for people of all ages to enjoy learning. Adult education classes are held in the fall and spring through evening and weekend course offerings. Participants do not need to live in Dripping Springs to participate in our classes.

    • Private Instruction
