Ensuring academic success for at-risk children.


The Academic Enrichment Program (AEP) is an afterschool program designed for children in kindergarten through fifth grade. They receive homework assistance, tutoring, warm meals and health and wellness resources. Bible study and prayer are led by volunteers and staff to help children realize their full potential. 

Hours of Operation

The program operates during the school year, Monday through Friday, from 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. We follow the HISD calendar and will provide care on early dismissal days. Our closings (holidays, in-service days, and weather emergencies) also correspond with HISD.


The Nehemiah bus picks up children at ­MacGregor Elementary School and Poe Elementary School Elementary after school and transports them to the Center.
