Educational institutions can be found all around the city. With six elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school, educational opportunities are plentiful. If you opt for a private education, Galveston can also accommodate you with a host of private and Christian schools, such as the Heritage Christian Academy or the Holy Faith Catholic School. When higher education is in order, the University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston College, or the Texas A&M University at Galveston accepts new students each year. Adult continuing education programs are also offered by these colleges.
Dance Your Way Throug
Enjoying a night full of culture and fun in Galveston is easy when you witness the Galveston Symphony Orchestra. Since forming in 1979 under Richard W. Pickar, the group has put on hundreds of performances in various venues around the city and the state. If dance is more up your alley, be sure to catch the Galveston Ballet, which holds a performance once in the spring and once in the fall. If you wish to become part of the act, the ballet company offers lessons and instructions for people of all ages.
Times of the Past
The historical significance of the city is important to the residents of Galveston and much can be learned by exploring the area. With one of the country‰Ûªs largest collections of 19th century buildings, Galveston takes pride in the restoration and preservation of those institutions. Spending a day visiting the Grand 1894 Opera House or the Galvez Hotel will enable you to capture a glimpse of what the city once was. The Library of Congress can also help educate you on both the city and the country with its vast collection of written and electronic works.
