I currently have three children enrolled at Houston Academy : an Upper School student, a Middle School student, and a Lower School student. We have been a part of the school family for the past twelve years and the experience has been fantastic. The academics are challenging and prepare the students for the future. The teachers are excellent and want their students to succeed. They are always willing to provide extra help when needed. The sports programs are great and the coaches are good mentors to the students. The student life has many different clubs and activities for students' participation. The Administration is always looking to improve the school in all aspects. Houston Academy is a great experience preschool through twelfth grade.

We have two children at Houston Academy and have been a part of the HA family for eleven years. HA combines a rigorous academic curriculum with a multitude of fine arts and athletic opportunities. We have always felt like Houston Academy is a family where the faculty sincerely care about the success and wellbeing of each child. If you are looking for an outstanding college preparatory school where traditional values are taught and followed, Houston Academy is THE choice.
