School Notes:

In August of 1995, Wesley Academy opened its doors and welcomed students from diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds. Today, Wesley Academy, conveniently located in the Westchase District, is housed on a twenty-eight acre campus. The two-story building contains 3 science labs, 2 swimming pools, ample field space, a gymnasium and handsome facilities to enhance academic and artistic development for children 6 months old through Grade 8.  The school enables each child to develop a sense of self-worth, independence, responsibility and self-direction. 

 Students are introduced to the wondrous diversity of creative expression and dynamic teaching from our fine faculty.  A robust curriculum coupled with the cultivation of  character, faith, and knowledge support our students well as they transition and thrive in high school and beyond.

Wesley Academy is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and is a member of the Texas Association of Non-Public Schools.
