Per a request from many Santas in Texas, we are adding a second school.  Our hotel is the Hilton Garden Inn, but it will not open until sometime in May.  School Registration is open now.  Hotel Registration will open on April 17.

As with all of our schools, this is for all Santas, Mrs Claus and those interested in the Santa industry.  Whether you are real bearded or theatrically bearded; professional or just a volunteer, this school has something for everyone.   And on Saturday Night we will have a special social with the Lone Start Santas.


1And we are most happy to tell everyone that our registration rates are still the same as in 2014.

A single registration is just $289 for the two day course, $399 for a couple. This includes 16 hours of training, the 240+ page course book and your personalized diploma, or two diplomas for a couple.  Travel, meals and lodging are not included.

Alumni Rates are just $219 per person, and $299 per couple  and include the full course and diplomas.

Plus all new students, who also attended the Discover Santa 2016 convention will receive an additional 10% off the general registration.

Our location Is the NEW Hilton Garden Inn, near the San Antionio Airport and is easily accessed by Southwest Airlines.    We will have a small room block of King-Study rooms, at $99 per night, for Santas and Mrs. Claus wanting to stay overnight.  Reservations can be made after April 17.  It will include free wi-fi and a complimentary airport shuttle.

The school is taught from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday.  On Saturday afternoon, at the close of class, I will host a presentation of the Santa Claus Oath.  All Santas and Mrs. Claus from the region are most welcome to join the class in the Oath ceremony.  One does not need to attend the school in order to  participate in the ceremony.   Special Oath certificates, suitable for framing will be presented to all attendees.

And also, on Saturday evening, there will be a nice dinner locally, at the Cracker Barrel – San Antonio (NE Loop 410), 98 NE Hwy.410I-410 & U.S. 281, Exit 20-E, 21-W, San Antonio, TX 78216.  Just down from the hotel but not walking distance.  This is being coordinated by the Lone Star Santas.  Again, all regional Santas, Mrs. Claus, families and friends are most welcome to attend.  You do not need to attend the school in order to join us for dinner. (Seperate checks please.)
