Houston Academy’s Upper School curriculum focuses on the core classes yet gives students a sampling of electives to meet their interests and talents.
Honors and AP classes, in addition to the college preparatory level, give students the opportunity to fulfill their potential and expand their horizons. The strength of Houston Academy’s Upper School is the excellent, qualified faculty members who strive every day to challenge, enlighten, encourage, and intellectually stimulate their students. In Upper School a semester system is in effect with an additional one week Short Term program in the spring. There are seven periods in a school day and classes meet for fifty minutes. Six of the seven periods rotate on a six day cycle. This serves to uphold Houston Academy’s strong academic tradition.
