Thank you for your interest in Houston Academy!

As Director of Admissions, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school community and provide you with valuable information about the admissions process.

At Houston Academy, we believe that education is the foundation upon which a bright and successful future is built.  Our goal is to foster a dynamic and nurturing environment where every child can thrive academically, emotionally, and socially.  We are committed to cultivating not only sharp minds but also compassionate hearts and strong characters.

As you explore the possibilities for your child’s education, I want to assure you that Houston Academy is dedicated to providing an exceptional educational experience that is both enriching and empowering.  Our distinguished faculty members are passionate about teaching and are deeply invested in the success and well-being of each student.  They use innovative and research-backed teaching methods to engage students and encourage a love for learning that lasts a lifetime.

One of the hallmarks of Houston Academy is our commitment to individualized attention.  We recognize that every child is unique, with their own strengths, challenges, and passions.  With small class sizes, we are able to tailor our approach to meet the specific needs of each student, ensuring that they receive the support and encouragement they need to reach their full potential.

We are the only college-preparatory, independent school in Southeast Alabama accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS). We are also the only member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). Our accreditation affords our students many scholarship opportunities not available to graduates of non-accredited schools.

To begin the admissions process, we encourage you to visit our admissions page at to fill out the online inquiry form.  I am here to assist you every step of the way and address any questions you may have.  Additionally, we host campus tours throughout the year, providing an opportunity for you to experience firsthand the warmth and vibrancy of our school community.

We understand that selecting the right school for your child is a significant decision, and we are honored that you are considering Houston Academy.  We eagerly anticipate the opportunity to get to know you and your child and embark on this exciting educational journey together.
