Alexander-Smith Academy was founded in 1968.  Dedicated to the philosophy of individualized, educational instruction, ASA challenges students and enables them to realize their innate potential.
Alexander-Smith Academy's mission is to offer a college-preparatory high school education in a relaxed, safe and comfortable environment.
Students, teachers and advisors achieve an optimum learning atmosphere by working together.
Treating students as young adults fosters graduates who are equipped to lead productive lives in a complex, pluralistic society.
ASA's primary goal is to create an environment in which each student can aquire the knowledge necessary to develop intellectual maturity.
A structured curriculum, which includes Honors and Advanced Placement course levels, is fundamental in achieving this goal, as are the unique five to seven students per class and daily tutorials.

School Notes

  • We require each student, interested in attending ASA, to schedule an appointment to visit our school with his or her parents. For this appointment the student should bring the most current report card, all transcripts and test scores. Students may be required to take a math and/or writing test to ensure proper placement.

School Reviews

5  
ASA is THE PERFECT school for students that have a talent or passion for an activity outside school. The student body includes serious athletes, actors, singers and others that make the most of their time away from school. It has been a gift for my daughter, an equestrian, to receive top-notch academic instruction while competing in her sport at a national level. Even though there aren't many sports and clubs provided by the school, I'm going to give the highest rating in each because it gives students the opportunity to pursue sports and other activities more than any other private school in Houston! Thank you ASA!
