The Saint Constantine School is not just in Houston, but part of Houston. Rather than building ourselves a bubble that keeps us away from our neighbors, we educate for real life in the middle of the most dynamic, diverse American city in the twenty-first century. Along with our students, the staff, faculty and parents of TSCS identify as a community of learners. This means that we take cultural engagement seriously, endeavoring always to seek Wisdom, Truth, and Beauty together.
To that end, The Saint Constantine School hosts several open events each semester, with hopes that more of our neighbors will join us in that endeavor. You can read about a few of these events below. To stay up to date with the open events throughout the year, please join our newsletter, or follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
Third Thursday Lectures
Our faculty is comprised of experts across a variety of disciplines, each of whom possesses a lively mind and a deep passion for artistic and intellectual pursuits.
On the Third Thursday of each month during the academic year, one or more faculty members host an evening of lecture, discussion, performance, group workshop, or - more typically - some combination of these. Recent lecture events have included readings and discussions focused on the fairytales of the Brothers Grimm, performance and lecture on the music of Shakespeare's plays, and an evening of stargazing and meditating on the ancient beliefs regarding man's place among the heavens.
These events are free and always open to the public.
Performances by the Saint Genesius Players
Each semester, our Upper School Theater program, the Saint Genesius Players, put on a show for the community. Depending on the year, performances may be located on campus, at a local event space or parish hall, or at Houston's MATCH.
Recent performances have included:
- A Grimm Tale, an original devised piece based on the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm
- Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare
- The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, based on the novel by C.S. Lewis
Performances typically cost $10. Subscribe to our newsletter for details about upcoming plays.
Student and Faculty Choirs of The Saint Constantine School perform in musical concerts at least once each semester. Our current schedule includes:
- Christmas Concerts
- Fine Arts Madrigal Dinner
- Spring Concerts
Depending on the year and event, these concerts may be hosted on- or off-campus. Generally, tickets are purchased in advance, though walk-in purchases may be available, depending on venue.
